Galahad was inspired by the legend of King Arthur, and was named for one of the knights of the Round Table. The grid-like stitch pattern is a modern interpretation of chain mail, geometric and masculine in design.

Knit in one piece from one end to the other, Galahad’s stitch pattern is created by an 8-row repeat of knits and purls. Garter stitch creates the grid effect on a stockinette background. A garter selvedge on either side of the scarf frames the grid, and provides a sturdy yet lovely edge.

Galahad is written in two sizes:

Small: The small scarf is perfectly sized for folding in half and knotting at the base of the neck. Its finished size is 7” x 70”, and uses approximately 310 yards of worsted-weight yarn. Small sample is shown in Old World.

Large: A bit wider and longer, the large scarf takes well to wrapping around the neck in a more traditional style. Its finished size is 8.75” x 84”, and uses approximately 490 yards of worsted-weight yarn. Large sample is shown in Soot.
