San Scarf

We’ve been rewatching Legend of Korra lately, and I had to make Mako’s scarf! If you haven’t seen the series (or Avatar the Last Airbender) I highly suggest you watch it! It’s soooooooo good, and definitely a show that’s for adults as well as children. If you haven’t seen either series definitely start with Avatar the Last Airbender.

Anyway! I named this scarf the San Scarf after Mako and Bolin’s dad since it was his scarf originally. I wanted to find a stitch that made a garment that wasn’t too “holey”. I modified the moss stitch slightly to make something more bulky and warm for the fall and winter months.

I like this modified moss stitch because it reminds me of bricks. It creates a nice solid texture while still giving the scarf some stretch.
