Hadn't thought about making that pattern into a scarf but I think I will. I have lots of scraps and I am making hats and scarves for kids who live in a colder area than I do.
A few years ago, when I first determined I would learn to knit, we went to a local historical farm for their Sheep to Shawl event. Everyone was dressed in period attire and there were sheerers, spinners, weavers, knitters and one lone crocheter.
The wool she was working with was beautiful and she was making a triangular shawl using this pattern of stitches. She had been working on it for some time after another lady had gotten her started in one corner. She sat there for the longest time trying to remember how to start it so she could show me and I went directly to the yarn store and bought the most beautiful green cotton.
It was a dream to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Someone admired it and I ended up giving it away and it has never seen the light of day since. :(
Thank you for posting this link. The woman I learned from said it was a generational hand-me-down pattern from oral instructions rather than written ones.
I've kept the initial practice swatch to reverse engineer when the time came. It makes a truly lovely shawl.
