Knit and purl stitches make a satisfying yet fairly easy-to-knit path down the length of this scarf. Knit with a thick sock yarn or light sport weight yarn with large needles, it works up quickly. It looks a bit like fancy ribs until blocked, when the magic happens, and the zigzags are allowed to strut their stuff. Scarf is cast on at one end, and knit through to the other end, then is bound off.

This pattern is now combined with Lombard and Spanish Dancer into Summer Triangle, a 3-pattern ebook.
