Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf

I'm still knitting! This project was finished in time to give as a Christmas gift to my mom.

Steve and I were in Asheville, North Carolina, and we went to Yarn Paradise, a great yarn store.  I've posted about this trip before.

In the middle of one of the rooms of the store was a round table on which sat a large basket of Koigu yarn and several examples of this scarf.  The sales clerk showed me that pattern and helped me to choose the yarns.

Pattern:  Koigu Linen Stitch scarf by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.  I bought it and the yarn I used to knit the scarf in November of 2010 while Steve and I were visiting Asheville, North Carolina.  The store is Yarn Paradise.

Yarn:  One skein each of Claudia Handpainted yarn in Plumicious, Koigu KPPPM 581, and Koigu KPPPM  470.

Needles:  U.S. 6 (4.0mm)

Timing:  I started the scarf in February of 2011 and finished it in December of 2011.

The fabric created by the linen stitch is very different from regular knitting.  It has an almost woven feel.  Great pattern, and I love the result.


The scarf is lovely. Your mom s very lucky.
