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

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
