Linen Stitch Scarf
Addendum to pattern
From Churchmouse Yarns on Bainbridge Island near Seattle

"We've linen stitch scarf scaled up one of our favorite scarf patterns by substituting a sport-weight linen yarn and much larger needles. Then we just kept knitting 'til it reached lavish proportions. We tried it with fringe, like the original, but the strands didn't behave and it just wasn't any fun. So we opted to work one-row stripes (with three colors, the next color is always waiting right where you need it!) for a glorious tapestry"
