The Shannon Scarf is named for my yarn dyeing friend who painted the lovely merino, yak, and silk skein I chose for this pattern. The long loop allows you to wear it as a cowl, scarf, or wimple. An edging of seed stitch leads its way into easy stockinette, garter, and simple lace bands. The edging ends with delightful points that frame your face.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
