    1. Hi Zena, thanks for your question! I knitted this scarf for my Dad and he was living on Ingram St in Glasgow at the time. Not a very meaningful reason, but I just liked the name.

    1. Hi Nelia,
      Thanks for your question! It means you use two strands of wool at the same time from two different balls.

  5. I just finished making this scarf with Deb Bliss Riva yarn. I love it. It's quite long in a bulky yarn, but is so cozy and warm. Thank you for sharing the pattern.
