A nicely textured yarn with inherent interest, but solid/tonal colours works well here.
This pattern is published in 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine Publishing.
Deer Scarf was inspired by natural motives and the image of a graceful deer. This rectangular scarf is knitted straight from one short edge to the other, and the pattern is also suitable for a beginner.
The deer stitch pattern is two-sided, which adds a nice detail. The construction of the scarf resembles a chess board: alternating ribbing stitches and the deer stitch pattern. Choose a soft, natural yarn for this design.
