Braided Interweaving Cowl
Great stashbuster! Knit strips are woven together. Change the size of the strips to create a headband, necklace, or more. Designed by Tuna KAL. Worsted weight yarn.
A Very Braidy Scarf
Scarf with braided sections. Designed by Kelly Judson. Aran weight yarn.
Celtic Knot Looped Scarf
Scarf with a braided or woven section at neck. Designed by Patricia Everett. Pictured projects by sonyal who used garter stitch instead of ribbing and kaffekaren who used brioche instead of ribbing. DK weight yarn. Please note: The original pattern calls for a ribbed scarf which not all Ravelrers liked because of curling issues. Many knitters subsituted other stitches for the non-woven part of the scarf such as garter stitch, seed stitch, broken rib, brioche, basketweave, cables, and more. I recommend you read the projects before knitting.
