The name of the stitch is a bit questionable, but I do love how it turns out... Faggot Stitch.  Can someone please tell me if there's an alternative name to this.

I used Caron's simply soft in watermelon pink and a bright green.  It's a late gift for a friend.  I also seamed the ends together to so it's just a circular scarf to toss over your head once or twice.

I've seen fagoting before (it's an old stitch that I've seen in books from the 19th century), but don't know of an alternate name.

But don't despair, it's a perfectly legitimate word: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/fagot

BEAUTIFUL SCARF!!!  It was a real pleasure to see the faggot stitch used on such pretty yarn.

That scarf is lovely, and the stitch is great. I think it looks a bit like crochet.

Haha, despite the name I really do enjoy this scarf. I like working with Caron Simply Soft except when it gets all fuzzy but this pattern was definitely a good use for it!

Hm! I had a scarf I got from the thrift store made from this stitch once! I was so confused by it, I just decided to believe it was crochet. Thanks for shedding the light on my mystery scarf. Cheesy

Fagoting is a kind of lace- it can be embroidered onto fabric, or knit.

I saw faggot stitch in my knitting book and wondered about trying it, and you just persuaded me to! I especially love the colours you chose.

(The name didn't bother me as much as that of the stitch afterwards, which was called Broken Rib...)

Hi guys.  Lovely scarf, Tinytallgirl.  I've edited out a bunch of off-topic comments.  Let's keep the topic on the scarf and the stitch and off philosophical debates, please. Cheesy

I think it can also be called cable stitch, but I'm not for sure.  Regardless, the scarf is really cute.

I've heard it called "fagot" stitch as well.  Does that help at all?

Also, beautiful scarf  Cheesy

I also made this scarf using the debbie bliss chunky cashmerino in burnt orange, and it was absolutely luxurious!

Gave it to my youngest sister to take home with her to Okinawa.

Since then, she has also picked up the knitting obsession Smiley

Thank you all for your comments.

If you google the stitch name, it ought to take you to a crystal palace site that shows the exact stitch instructions.  I wasn't sure if we could post the link on the board.
