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.
