"Harmonize a hundred colors. Or quietly play tone on tone."
Linen stitch has a way of harmonizing even the most disparate colors. Our friend Mimi Hepler first created this scarf to use up all her precious Koigu leftovers—18 different colorways! So for our scarf we chose three skeins of Koigu that combined as many different colors as possible. But it's equally beautiful in subtle shades. In fact, we haven't seen a bad combination yet! That's the magic of linen stitch. Heck, it's even beautiful on the 'wrong' side.
YARN 3 skeins Koigu KPPPM (175 yds/160m each) in 3 different colorways. Or approx. 525 yds/480m of an equivalent fingering-weight yarn.
