Scarf opinion needed
I am using this stitch pattern, but wanted to do it as a long thin scarf. Probably about 5 inches wide. I played with the stitch pattern last night and it is not reversible. (The pattern is for a baby blanket)

So, would you wear a wrap around scarf that was not reversible or would it bug you?

I've made a lot of scarves that aren't reversible. I'd prefer if they were but I wear them anyway.

So many of the very popular patterns like the Clapotis are not reversible.

I guess it's what you would be comfortable with.

Yep, many scarf patterns aren't reversible. I don't think it's that big a deal really.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.

for me it doesn't have to be reversible, I'm just mindful of how I put it on if I want to show off my workmanship
