The Design

"Shimmering stockinette."

We keep coming back to the Bias 'Before & After' pattern again and again. Why? It’s just the right balance of mindless and thoughtful—a little business on the ends of the knit row, otherwise a field of stockinette. No fancy lace or cables here—the star of the show is the yarn.

And what a yarn! Shibui Reed is a new 100% linen yarn that’s shimmery, strong, and soft as a sigh. With a smooth, consistent chainette construction, it flows through your fingers like a breeze. Unlike most linen yarns, Reed is not crisp. Rather, it’s pliable, sleek, graceful—all qualities that emerge in the light, lovely drape of this classic scarf!
