This particular scarf pattern has really grabbed my interested to knit several of them. It is so much fun to knit with all the fun Yarns. Fleece Artist, Hand Dyed Yarns and some variegated Yarns can make a unique one of a kind pattern. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall04/PATTclapotis.html
You decrease on one side and increase on the other side of the Scarf. As you knit along you drop stitches in the appropriate places and the fun begins. One always gets this great surprise in how different each scarf looks at the end. I have not knit one that turned out the same. For fun I have added some Seedbeads to the ends that the stitch gets dropped down. looks nice too. You can add as many repeats of the pattern to make it the width you like. I am tempted to knit a blanket in this pattern with some of my stashed wool. I will see how my free time will be over this winter.
