The Design

“Cozy lines.”

We all crave that pattern that combines the meditative with a little bit of thinking. The Bias ‘Before & After’ Scarf is perfect for that. The simplicity of stockinette, with a little bit of business on the ends of the knit rows creating the bias detail. We couldn’t resist knitting a stripey version (who could?) and we wrote a free adaptation that shows you how easy it is!

For a lightweight, bouncy, wonderfully stripey Bias ‘Before & After’ Scarf, we chose three colors of Rowan Moordale. This DK-weight yarn is a springy blend of British alpaca fiber and fine micron Bluefaced Leicester wool. Fine and crimpy, Bluefaced Leicesters have one of the softest fleeces of British sheep! With the silky touch of alpaca, Moordale knits into a warm, robust scarf that drapes beautifully.
