I’m guessing many of you have too many of one item in your closet. That may be too many shoes (guilty), too many handbags, or in my case too many scarves, mostly knitted ones. There is an infinite number of ways to combine pattern stitches, yarns, and colour work to create this most practical accessory. I’m drawn towards simple construction and stitch patterns, and adding details like lace edgings. Garter stitch is the first pattern beginner knitters learn, and is the basis for this fun scarf by Churchmouse Yarns. It’s finished off with a zig zag detail reminiscent of the edge formed by cutting with pinking shears, hence the name. The Pinking Shear Scarf would work with a variety of animal fibers including merino wool, alpaca, cashmere, or baby yak, as used by the designer of this scarf.
