Free Pattern Friday: A Linen Stitch Scarf

There are many free patterns available for making a Linen Stitch Scarf.  Cheyl Marie's pattern Linen Stitch Scarf From Leftover Yarn is very similar to the technique I use.

You get to use up all kinds of odds and ends of yarn, and you can mix in yarns of differing weights as long as you mostly stick to one weight overall.

The most critical thing is to cast on very loosely, so that the cast on edge isn't tighter than the bind off, but other than that, once you master the stitch, it's all about playing with color.

I love it -- it definitely looks woven rather than knitted. But linen stitch is so fiddly to do, I think. I've never gotten further than making a bookmark with it!

Very pretty! The linen stitch is a great one and sure does resemble weaving. Yours turned out great!
