San Francisco is a magical city filled with wondrous things. One of my favorites is a one-block long section of Lombard Street. This crooked bit of the street started out straight, but it’s so steep that in 1922 the switchback course was added. In 1939 it was made into a one-way street. Though delightful to go down, one of my favorite parts of the street is best seen standing still at the top: the view. It’s breathtaking.
This rectangular scarf is knit in the round beginning at the center line with a toe-up sock cast on. Alternating knit and purl rows are worked to achieve a garter stitch scarf. An applied border adds a delicate finish.
Lombard is also part of a three-pattern ebook, Summer Triangle.
