"Sleek and sweet."

A fun little zig-zag detail at the edges gives this sweet garter stitch scarf a fresh finish. The shallow triangle is worked ‘both ends against the middle’—two identical pieces are knit separately and then grafted together at the center for perfectly mirrored halves.

Knit in a cool plant fiber, like Shibui Reed, this versatile scarf will carry you throughout most of the year. Reed is 100% linen, but it lacks the crispness of most linen yarns, thanks to its smooth, consistent chainette construction. So, it’s pliable, sleek, and graceful—all qualities that emerge in the light, lovely drape of its knitted fabric. And Shibui’s deep, vivid color palette absolutely shimmers!
