Herringbone Knit Scarf
Herringbone is such a beautiful, classic stitch that is often overlooked in knitting. It can be knit up quite fast on larger needles and makes a dense, fluffy fabric. Perhaps one of the reasons we don’t see it more is because most patterns don’t have a nice edging and the stitch can tend to curl as stockinette stitch does but less dramatically.
I wanted to come up with the perfect herringbone knit scarf that would work well with winter coats, fall sweaters, and would look lovely both dressed up or worn casually. Grey has been majorly in fashion this year so it makes sense that I would choose a grey heather yarn to really show the dimension and beauty of the stitch. Any heather, hand-dyed, or dynamic colored of yarn would look amazing in this stitch.
For this scarf, I used 3 balls of Lion Brand Wool Ease Tonal in Grey Marble [linked here]. I chose a darker grey to accent the dark colors in the scarf and add a bit of interest, [linked here]. The fringe also helps the herringbone hang flat and avoid curling.

If you are using a different yarn than the one I have used, make sure to check your gauge before you start. Herringbone stitch knits quite a bit more dense than other stitches so you will need bigger needles.
