Every winter wardrobe needs an understated but refined scarf. This one has enough detail to keep the knitting interesting with a geometric cable pattern worked at either end.
Both ends are fully charted so there’s no need to graft the centre in order to have matching ends. The cable patterning is confined to the area more visible when worn, while the background is worked in a fast rib pattern made up of more knits than purls.
The polished edging is simply worked with slipped stitches and stockinette, using the natural roll of stockinette for a rounded finish.
Hiraethis written in two sizes: a wide wrap for cozying up in and a longer skinnier version perfect for wearing in a dapper woven knot.

Introducing the first in an ongoing series of guest posts. I'm honoured that we're beginning with this vital letter from Emi Ito.
Emi has been outspoken about the cultural appropriation of the kimono in fashion and has helped many makers and designers find a less hurtful approach to naming their patterns and products.
