One of the most important grasses in the Tallgrass Prairie, Switchgrass grows tall and graceful. It has many applications, from the production of biofuel to use in ornamental gardens. And Kansas cattle love it.

The Switchgrass Scarf is worked from end to end on a background of garter stitch with some elements of Orenburg construction. Beads (approximately 2500) represent seed heads, and they add a nice weight to the piece, although the scarf can be knit without them if desired.

Sample shown in colorway Rumplestilskin.
