Cousin Martha's Scarf to Knit
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
This scarf includes several of the motifs from Cousin Martha's shawl, knitted in a thicker alpacasilk yarn-something that makes the scarf practical and beautiful. I began with the same border used on the shawl and adapted it for a narrower scarf design. The center section of the scarf uses the mesh design from the shawl. I switched from garter to stockinette stitch and back to garter to add more body and textural interest to the scarf. Worked in two pieces from the end toward the center, the scarf can be finished with a three-needle bind off or by grafting.
