If you wish, you can work the pattern off the chart, just remember to maintain 5 stitches in garter stitch on both lateral edges of the scarf. I hope you'll have a fun time knitting this scarf and enjoy wearing it.

Для шарфика я набирала 83 петли. Затем провязала 4 ряда платочной вязки. 
Первые и последние 5 петель я вязала платочной вязкой, а между ними вязала узор по схемке (6 раппорторов узорчика). Провязав раппорт 21 раз в высоту, провязала ещё 4 ряда платочной вязкой и закрыла петли. Постирала и высушила разложив по размеру.
