Hiraeth

The Hiraeth scarf from Ysolda's Knitworthy 2 collection

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.

Hiraeth is the seventh pattern in the Knitworthy 2 collection and is currently only available ot subscribers. You can find out more about it and purchase a subscription here. 

Thank you to the lovely Jeni Reid for the photography!
