I am always amazed at how simple combinations of knit and purl stitches can be so beautiful. The unique and lovely texture of a knit-purl fabric always catches my eye!

The simplicity of this particular diagonal pattern really speaks to me. And by shifting the direction of the diagonals halfway through the knitting of the scarf, the two halves are mirrored and symmetrical, a subtle detail that hand knitters are sure to appreciate.

Line Weight is the perfect yarn for our Shifting Angles Scarf. For a yarn that looks so delicate in the skein, it has a ton of body and great stitch definition. I chose this lovely Tabby Gray color as an ode to classic knitwear and a nod to all the beautiful new colors in Purl Soho’s Line Weight collection. Pick up two skeins of your favorite color and enjoy the simplicity of knits and purls! -Michele Wang
