Gridwork Scarf

I love to wear scarves and with the arrival of spring weather, I wanted something lighter with drape to wear during the coming months. Since humidity is a large part of spring and summer in South-Western Ontario, I need a stitch pattern that would still look great, even if the scarf rolled or lost its blocking. Once I discovered this strong graphical stitch in Charted Knitting Design: A Third Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker, I knew I had a winner.
