Knitworthy 2
The collection features 8 patterns intended to make good gifts for everyone on your knitworthy list (because life’s too short to knit for anyone who doesn’t love what you make).

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 area most 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.

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.

Stitch patterns are provided in chart format only.

Double knitting weight yarn with good stitch definition.

De Rerum Natura Ulysse (100% merino, 202 yds / 185m, 50g) in Printemps.

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