Pattern Details

Knit a piece of textile history! The pattern for this scarf is based on Barbara Walker's interpretation of the Dura-Europos "knitting" fragment (later proven to be nalbinding, not knitting at all. More information can be found in the excellent Knitty article on the subject, found here). The scarf is reversible and knits up quickly because of its shape. It's really like knitting only half a scarf!

I gravitate toward designs with clean lines and contemporary (but not too contemporary!) stylings. I strive to make my designs available to knitters in as wide a range of sizes as possible. Things I love: cables, simple lace, strong lines, designs that look far more complicated to make than they actually are, and beautiful, saturated colors complementing each other in stripes or colorwork. Besides designing, I am also an aspiring fiction writer. I work on my novels for kids and young adults when I'’m not knitting as fast as my hands will go.
