The Wing’m is an asymmetrical scarf that is knitted holding 2 strands of 4-ply or sport weight yarn together and alternating small patches of knitting stitches with either 1 or both strands held together.

Because I wanted a double-sided fabric, I replaced the stranded knitting with double knitting.
