I love the classic garter stitch “bow-tie” scarf, an idea that’s both adorably cute and practical. there’s also something pleasingly knitterly about the construction of the ribbed loop. but, of course, that design already exists and numerous patterns can be found. rather than totally re-inventing the wheel, edinburgh rock is my take on that idea, lengthened to wrap twice around the neck (Scotland is not the place for draughty neckwear!) and with a few additions. the scarf section features columns of simple lace that add interest and create structural folds, and the bow or leaf shape of the ends is echoed in the little leaf motifs both are worked down from the ribbed section for perfect symmetry. a slipped stitch, i-cord like, edging neatens the edges.
