Linen stitch has a way of harmonizing even the most disparate colors. Our friend Mimi Hepler first created this scarf to use up all her precious Koigu leftovers—18 different colorways! So for our scarf we chose three skeins of Koigu that combined as many different colors as possible. But it’s equally beautiful in subtle shades. In fact, we haven’t seen a bad combination yet! That’s the magic of linen stitch. Heck, it’s even beautiful on the ‘wrong’ side.
Approx. 5" x 60", excluding fringe.
