About this item
Our fervent love of linen stitch continues. The eight-color wrap and four-color scarf take on a convincingly woven look. Knitted length-wise, with knotted self-fringe, they look like they’re right off the loom. The ‘wrong’ side has a more knitterly seed stitch look that’s gorgeous, too. Seemingly random striping sequences are quite forgiving—if you run out of a color, just throw in another!
We’ve designed the Wrap & Scarf for a DK-weight gauge yarn. For a woolly wrap with lots of drape, we’ve picked Rowan Felted Tweed, and for a scarf with next-to-the-skin softness, we love Blue Sky Fiber's Baby Alpaca.
This four page pattern includes:
- Color photography by the talented Jared Flood
- A clear guide for color sequencing
- Instructions for knotted self-fringe, finishing, and blocking your piece
