The Distitch Edge Scarf is a basic garter stitch scarf. However it has a very exciting feature - a new type of selvedge. This technique is fully explained in the pattern with written instructions, diagrams and QR code video.

The pattern was designed to demonstrate Distitch selvedge and is taken from Distitch, a book about this innovative principle of knitting. Distitch provides a very neat, clear and decorative edge, some samples are presented in this video. More about Distitch knitting can be found on website https://assiabrill.com/
