Pattern Description:

This scarf was named for the Norwegian folksong "Guro rid til Ottesong." Guro Heddelid was a renowned beauty in medieval Telemark. Many men fought for her favour and her suitors battled each other for her hand in marriage. She is said to have died in 1349 during the Black Death.

The scarf features diamonds, hearts, and little leaves. The first border is worked then set aside, then the second border and the scarf length are knitted. Then the live stitches of the first border are grafted to the live stitches of the scarf length. Afterwards, stitches are picked up from the provisional cast on for the crochet chain edging.

The pattern assumes that you know how to cast on provisionally, read charts, knit nupps, and graft (Kitchener stitch). Instructions and tips are provided for the vikkel braid and crochet chain edging.
