Borden is a cozy lace infinity scarf in an unusual and elegant lace stitch that looks different and beautiful on both sides. Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted is a super soft, cushy worsted weight merino wool that you'll just want to snuggle up with. Borden is easy to resize with smaller or larger yarn and needles, and is knit back and forth. If you prefer not to work a provisional cast on, simply cast on with any method and sew the ends together to form the loop. The "Flags" stitch pattern is adapted from Reversible Knitting by Lynne Barr (Stewart, Tabori and Chang 2009). Technical Editing by Alexandra Virgiel.
