Eldred is a simple scarf of 2-row stripes that also alternate garter and stockinette stitch from side to side, bordered by slipped stitches and garter bands. The stitch pattern and colors reverse position halfway through, and both colors are used equally. The garter and stockinette stripes create a bit of an optical illusion.
