Spring is definitely here, and Linden Leaf is a warm weather accessory knit in sport weight linen. Something between a scarf and a shawlette, it’s a welcome way to dress up your spring/summer wardrobe.
Like its sister SeaScape Scarflette, Linden Leaf is a long narrow asymmetric triangle. This one features a lacy edge of tumbling leaves.
It can be worn long, loosely knotted, double wrapped…so many ways to add a little pizazz to your outfit.
Linen gives this fabric a lovely hand and sheen. I highly recommend it! I used a Euroflax mini-skein set in the Forest colorway from Mason-Dixon Knitting. The mini-skein sets are back in stock, and new color sets have been added. Just in time for a quick summer knit! And single color Euroflax Sport linen can be found at many LYS’s and online.
The mini-skein set has five 65 yard skeins totaling 325 yards. A single skein of Euroflax Sport, which is 270 yards, will also make a nicely sized scarf. (I used about 300 yards of the minis, due to placement of color joins.) Test knitters Ann Berg and Rachel Nichols used Juniper Moon Farm ZOOEY DK, a 60/40 Cotton/Linen blend, 284 yards. It also blocked beautifully. The linen is slightly crisper, and a bit more open.

Thank you to tech editor Amanda Woodruff and test knitters Ann Berg and Rachel Nichols.
Another winner! I wish I could wear shawlettes, scarves and the like but with no neck they don’t look right and if I wrap them loosely they fall off.
I’m pretty short necked, and this and SeaScape are my favorite accessories to wear! I love the way linen feels…
Very pretty 🙂
A very wearable design – I see this in shades of blue for a seaside jaunt!
Oh yes! I love blues, too. I was looking at the pile of shawls on my piano, and there’s a lot of blue/green/gray there.
