Borough Market Scarf

There has been a market in Borough, on the south end of London Bridge, for arguably over 1000 years. It is the place to go for fresh produce, game birds, incredible cheese, and just about any other culinary delight you might fancy. This time of year, you’ll need this scarf to make your shopping experience a cozy one – worked in worsted weight yarn this scarf knits up quickly enough for a last minute gift. Knit lengthwise and shaped, with short rows, this scarf incorporates a geometric lace border with a gentle curve that works as a narrow shawl or wrapped a couple times around the neck for extra warmth.

This pattern is part of The Southwark Collection ebook, which also includes the Shard Hat, Tower Bridge Mitts, and Gherkin Mittens.
