Dilemma of a lengthways scarf

Lengthways scarves are a great way to use up yarn, particularly when you have lots of oddments of different shades – for example left over from a Fair-Isle project (see right)

Kaffe Fassett design: “Cassis” in Rowan Kidsilk Haze

However, in my search for suitable stitches, I find the same re-occurring problem…. the amount of stretch across the ‘width’ of the knitting.

The result – a scarf which stretches and distorts out of shape when tied or draped around the neck.

My conclusion: probably crochet is much more suitable for lengthways working.
