This was made using a chart, and in the end it turned out to look nice on both sides (always great when your scarf doesn’t have an ugly backside!)
The part of the scarf hanging down shows the front side, the top shows the back side. The main part of the scarf was knit using the chart, and then crochet was done down the sides (dc, chain, dc, chain etc. to make it holey), then fringe was added.
This chart was from: The New Knitting Stitch Library. Lesley Stanfield. Quarto Publishing, 1992. Chart # 15, page 29.
