Caliper Stitch Scarf

#HappyMonday#friends! Today I am sharing with you a project that has taken me the better part of 5 YEARS to complete. Not because this is a difficult pattern but I had moved around the US some and somehow this#projectkept slipping to the bottom of the#yarncontainers ????????‍♀️. Last year when I moved back to#SanFranciscoI had shipped my mom all the yarn I couldn’t take with me (AKA her earnings as my unpaid#intern) and she found the#WIPburied in there. She finished it off for me and has now claimed it as her own! So,#Voila, here you have the#CaliperStitch#knit#Scarf!! With all our spare time, we are completing all of those#worksinprogress. Who else is finally getting around to finishing off old projects? Let me know what you’re picking back up in the comments below.

Pattern Notes:

Okay, this stitch takes some getting used to but once you get the hang of it you will be so happy you did!! This pattern is worked over a multiple of 13 + 9 stitches. You can increase the pattern for a wider scarf in multiples of 13.
