This free pattern turns what is usually an ‘oops’ into ‘gorgeous!’ We found this stitch in Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns and we fell for it in a big way. Extra stitches are created with a yarn over, then dropped and laddered down six rows later for a gentle, waterfall effect. Clever!

With sunny summer days in mind, we knit this scarf up in Louet Euroflax Sport. This fiber is one of the world’s finest linen yarns, gleaned from blue-flowering flax, known for stems nearly a yard long. It’s wet-spun, double-boiled, and then steamed for softness at a mill that’s been operating for generations. And it only gets softer wash after wash!
