Inspired by John Thornton from The Call of the Wild.

“With the warmth and bulk to battle a Yukon winter and a weight perfect for traveling light, this quick-knitting masculine cabled scarf is at once rustic and sophisticated. The yarn’s novel construction yields a fabric both warm and weightless, and its shaggy profile gives the scarf an instant weathered appearance just right for an outdoorsman. The irregular cabled border and intricate knot cables make it fun to knit without crossing into vexatious. If you prefer a crisper cable, substitute a smooth bulky plied yarn instead.”
