Scarfs done in the linen stitch have been popular now for a while. Rather than being knitted back and forth across the width of the scarf these patterns are knitted along the scarf's length and in the round. The middle section is 20 plain knitted stitches and when finished you cut across the mid point of this section unravel and the braid the fringe . I am using four skeins of 100% Merino Wool by Koigu Wool Designs in Williamsfort, Ontario Canada in four color ways. I've included a picture of the sample in the store where the yarn was purchased. My son and his family live in Memphis and Yarniverse was a shop I easily found 2 blocks from the house they rented before they purchased their first home a few miles away. I vista the store every time I visit my son and always walk out with something.
