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 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.
