Greece Scarf

The June scarf for the International Year of the Scarf Club is Greece.

The Greece scarf has got to be one of the most pleasant, relaxing, and satisfying projects of the year. The yarn, a self-striping one in the colours of the seashore, does most of the work.

Paired with a sequence of easy lace stitches, interspersed with rows of wrapped stitches, this pattern is easy to memorize and can be taken anywhere. It makes for excellent vacation knitting.

It is worked from one end to the other and requires no grafting, no provisional cast-ons, no fiddling of any kind. Just cast on, knit as prescribed by the pattern and bind off. Then block to open up the pretty lace stitch pattern--and wear!
