LINEN SCARF OR WRAP

Linen Scarf or Wrap

Both versions of this pattern use the same stitch, but the overall effect is quite different. The scarf (opposite, right) is knit the short way, making the look more masculine and the design begins to take shape quickly. The wrap (opposite, left) requires knitting rows the long way, and you won’t begin to see the pattern emerge until you’ve completed an inch or so. Either way, don’t be tempted to use smaller needles than called for. Larger needles are necessary to keep this stitch from becoming too tight.
