Simple combination of knit and purl stitches creates a jacquard pattern that looks equally good on both sides. Knitted in blend of alpaca and wool the fabric of the scarf has softness and fluidity that doesn’t create a bulk so it can be worn under the “executive” coat hence its name. Tubular cast-on and invisible cast-off as well as a slipped first stitch on every row creates neat edges. Added garter stitch on each side prevents the edges from curling.
