A Free Scarf Pattern that uses only 1 ball of Mendocino.

Designer Note: This scarf is meant to wear as accent, not for warmth. But, if you would like a wider, more traditional scarf, use 2 balls and double the width. By knitting lengthwise the slow-striping colors make long, vertical color changes.
