Relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of making this ingenious scarf. Limestone is knit horizontally, and the rhythm becomes natural and hypnotic. German short rows create wider ends, with a narrower neck for comfortable wearing.

Limestone makes a perfect gift and you can knit it up in no time.

Everything you need to know to make this is in the pattern — including Action charts!

Mitered square “leaves” grow naturally from the horizontal purl ribs and are great portable projects that are satisfyingly quick to knit. The central eyelet motif of the miters and the delicate movement of your leaves highlights the natural beauty of the squishy Powder River yarn.
