Far Hills is available as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS, available at brooklyntweed.

Columns of beaded rib leaven traditional cables for a handsome, unisex accessory with layers of texture. Worked from end to end in Shelter, the Far Hills Scarf can be knit to three different lengths. Because the central horseshoe cable crosses at a slower rate than the flanking cables, the pattern is worked from a large chart. Tubular edges and flat-lying selvedges worked by combining knit and slipped stitches ensure a perfect, professional finish.
