Beat the cold weather in instant style with a chunky cable-knit scarf or wrap. Blocks of textural patterning reminiscent of seamen’s ganseys create an attractive allover fabric and keep the knitting process engaging. Work up a traditional scarf or, if you prefer accessories that don’t mince around, expand your Byway to a dramatic wrap. Quarry makes the knitting fly and shows the stitch patterns beautifully.

This pattern was published as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS. You can purchase all patterns in this collection as an ebook at

Both the scarf and wrap are worked flat in one piece from end to end.
