Asherton Reversible Scarf

I finally finished this scarf, just in time for Doro's birthday, which is two days away. The best part about the scarf is that it is deceiving; it's simply a 44-row pattern of knit and purl stitches, but it looks much more difficult. You will need a row counter, and this is not really knitting that can be done while chatting. Well, at least I found it difficult due to the combination of knit and purl stitches. But other than that, very simple!

The stitch pattern is a moss stitch and diamond lozenge pattern.

I followed the pattern exactly as written. After knitting the first four rows of garter stitch, I knit the 44-row pattern seven times, then the first 24 rows again (recommended for pattern symmetry), then finally ended in four more rows of garter stitch. The scarf is approximately 60 inches long.
