The Wing’m is an asymmetrical scarf knitted holding 2 strands of 4-ply or sport weight yarn together and alternating small patches of knitting stitches with either 1 or both strands held together. The resulting fabric is completely reversible.
The inspiration behind it is Anna Maltz’s recent publication of Marlisle (available HERE), a book about combining knitting with 2 strands of yarn held together with stranded knitting. Because I wanted a double-sided fabric, I replaced the stranded knitting with double knitting.
All options contatin the Gingham Wing’m pattern.
