Claudia Hand Painted Linen Stitch Wrap Project
The magic of knitted linen stitch plays out exquisitely in Claudia's Hand Painted Linen yarn. We've put together beautiful colorways that combine two variegated and one semi-solid for a beautiful, integrated fabric with supple drape.
The scarves stacked on the chair (from top to bottom) use colorways Bronze, Greens, Plums and Reds. (Not shown in the stack are two new colorways Greys and Aquas.)
We started with our Churchmouse Classics Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf pattern and wrote an adaptation that changes the needle size, deletes the fringing steps, and morphs the scarf into a wrap. Or wear it as a lavish scarf that you can tie any number of ways. (We love the drape on a 10¾ needle, which is a slightly odd size, so we offer it below.)
If you don't already own the Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf pattern, grab it below, then add the adaptation—you'll need both! Want more yarn or other colors? Go to Claudia Hand Painted Linen.
