HELP US RAISE FUNDS FOR SCOTTISH TRANS ALLIANCE!

We would love to see this scarf worked up in a variety of new yarns. To encourage that, from now until the end of October, we’re going to donate 25% of pattern sales for this shawl (along with Caer Idris and Banyan) to Scottish Trans Alliance, who work to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion in Scotland.

Also, if you upload finished project pictures to social media or Ravelry by 29th October, you will be entered into a draw to win 5 free Ysolda patterns. Don’t forget to tag us @ysolda and add the hashtag #HiraethScarf if you’re sharing on social media.


  • CONSTRUCTION

    Both ends of the scarf 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 most visible when worn, while the background is worked in a fast rib pattern made up of more knits that purls. The polished edging is simply worked with slipped stitches and stockinette, using the natural roll of stockinette for a rounded finish.

    Hiraeth is written in two sizes: a wide wrap for cozying up in and a longer skinnier version perfect for wearing in a dapper woven knot.

    Note that the worsted spun DK Bluefaced Leicester is much denser than the lofty woollen spun Ulysse, hence the very different yardage to weight ratios.
