If you’ve never played with lifted stitches before, you’re in for a treat with this scarf. It’s a fairly simple design – a border of seed stitch surrounding a main panel of garter and lifted stitch ribbing. It can be done in a solid color yarn too, but this kind of stitch really allows handpainted yarns to put their best food forward. The Flex Tips section includes instructions for making a reversible version of the scarf by working it in a tube rather than back and forth.
