This pattern is published in Twist & Knit: A Dozen Knitted Patterns for Handspun, Hand-dyed and One-of-a-kind Yarns.. The printed book (or printed book with digital add-on) can be purchased here. This pattern is also included in Twist & Knit Digital Collection #2.

Designed for versitility, this piece could be knit in ANY weight of yarn, in any quantity (size and yardage will vary). The sample was knit with 350 yards (about 2.5 ounces) of Red Rocks Fiber Works Steamboat (51% silk/49% Superfine Merino, 665 yards in 5.5 ounce skein) in ‘Turtelcoy’; 16 wpi

Either as a scarf or a wrap, this piece is stunning. With an easy-to-remember repeat, it would be great travel knitting.

This scarf is worked beginning with the first border piece, stitches are then picked up on the edge and the length of the scarf worked perpendicular to the border. The final border is knitted on to the live stitches from the scarf. This scarf could easily be widened into a stole by adding repeats of Chart 1 and the corresponding number of repeats across the width of the scarf.
