A tactile melange of worsted-spun Arbor and woolen-spun Loft, the Tallera scarf is delightfully springy and tremendously touchable. Wide bands of compressible garter stitch are punctuated by angular accents of half Fisherman’s Rib — all constructed through simple short rows. Whether wrapped double around the neck for a tucked-in cowl look or worn long as a scarf, Loft’s natural airiness keeps the weight light and prevents any sense of feeling overwhelmed by Tallera’s voluminous fabric.


  • The scarf is worked flat from end to end.
  • The scarf is composed of wedges of garter stitch worked in Loft with different directions, achieved using Short Rows: Wrap & Turn Method.
  • The wedges in Loft are divided with strips worked in Arbor.
