In the autumn of 2010, I was happily knitting what I thought was Wanietta Prescod’s Knotted Openwork Scarf
Reader, I was mistaken. Instead I had invented this variant, in which the syncopation of the original eyelet pattern is broken up by horizontal floats. The result is waffle-y, lofty and a little yarn-hungry. It mixes up the colours in a hand-paint beautifully, and adds welcome winter warmth to openwork.
