The linen stitch (one of our favorite stitches!) creates a beautiful fabric that looks almost handwoven, and provides a lovely way to play with different color and fiber combinations. This scarf calls for two different but similar-weight yarns (changed randomly, or with the flip of a penny!), and it is especially fun to knit with a semi-solid or solid yarn and a variegated yarn.
This pattern is knit side to side and includes instructions for both fingering-weight and sport-weight versions. Sport-weight instructions are in parentheses.
Materials, Needles, and Hooks: Fingering-weight version: 1 skein Fidalgo Artisan Yarn’s Fidalgo Fingering (65% merino, 35% bamboo, 100gm=495yds) and 1 skein Fidalgo Artisan Yarn’s One Foot Two Foot (85% superwash merino, 15% nylon, 50g, 218yds) or 600 yards of any fingering-weight yarn; US 7 (4.5mm) 32-inch circular needles (or size to obtain gauge), US 2 (2.75mm) needle for binding off, size G crochet hook.
