This scarf is based on an open checker stitch, so the name “Checkers” seemed appropriate for this quick, easy scarf. Enjoy!
Gauge is not critical for this project. My scarf is 4″ wide x 52″ in length.
Worsted weight yarn ( I used Naturally Caron Country, Renaissance Rose, 185 yd/skein, 75% acrylic 25% wool).
sk st=skip stitch
