In Fingering weight yarn, One skein projects, Patterns, Shawls & Shawlettes, Shop sample available by Shannon

The Serriform scarf and shawlette is infinitely wearable. A serrated lace edging paired with the ever-lovely yet rustic garter stitch makes this pattern as enjoyable to knit as it is to wear. With two patterns in one, you can make either a long scarf or a deeper shawlette and, as it’s made from tip to tip, you can use up every last yard of your yarn. It’s also a great canvas on which variegated, hand-painted yarns can shine.
