This lightweight scarf is an essential summer accessory.
The Karner Scarf is a lightweight knitting project to take with you on your travels, and the finished scarf is the perfect summer accessory. Wear it with dresses, jackets, indoors and outdoors. This versatile scarf is a fun, take-anywhere project that you’ll truly enjoy wearing.
The Karner Scarf is best knit on circular needles due to its generous width. Because lace weight yarn is fine, sometimes it may slip off your needles if you have a loose gauge. To avoid this, use bamboo needles, which keep the yarn in place better. You can also prevent dropped stitches by using a rubber band to hold your needle tips together when storing your project.
