I think this is a really pretty scarf. I don't remember working a linen stitch before, but it's simple enough according to the instructions. The only thing is having to cut the yarn at the end of every row seems like a lot of trouble, or am I reading the pattern wrong?

It could be if you has to darn in all the ends, but it's being used to create a built in fringe without having to attach it at the end.
