Repeat Pattern C until work measures 180cm from cast on. (Or to almost the length you want if you have more yarn, remembering that your scarf will shrink by about 20% in length when you wash it) 

 

Once knitting is required length, repeat pattern B again (Adding 24 rows)

Then repeat pattern C again (Adding a final 16 rows)

Cast off. 

 

There is a subtle asymmetry in the design to allow the scarf to hang well.
