You can modify this scarf in a number of interesting ways. Here are a few possibilities:
i Turn the scarf into a shawl by making it wider (cast on another 12 stitches, or a multiple of 12).
i Use decorative yarn-over increases (see Chapter 6) instead of bar increases. (Cast on 1 less stitch for this version.)
I Work the pattern in colored stripes (see Chapter 10) or in a light-weight mohair yarn on large needles.
I Use the chevron pattern (you can find it in Appendix A) and make the scarf pointy instead of scalloped. Cast on a multiple of the chevron pattern plus 4 extra stitches to work a 2-stitch garter edge.
