Two-Tone Twill Scarf
“Two gauges, two colors … too cool!”
Our love affair with linen stitch continues—this time using two high-contrast colors for crisp zigs and zags, or two closer colors for tonal shading. We started with a soft fingering-weight yarn and then took it all the way to a lace-weight yarn to mimic the breezy sigh of a fine woven scarf. Aaah …
