"Super simple, but a little bit complicated to describe and explain! I’ve wanted to be ableto work colour and texture into a design for some time and could never quite get it to work, other than using brioche, which Iadmit is lovely, but isn’t quite what I was after. I’m really pleased with this though which is extremely textured! The way it is mademeans that you almost get a woven-like fabric–almost not knitting at all!
It isworked using the ‘double knitting’technique. Usually used in a rib to give completely reversed stitches on the two sides of your work, here I done it in moss (seed) stitch to create really distinct stitch shapes and textures. The scarf is reversible too which I think is a must for any scarf really.
I’ve worked this using two separate contrast colours, you could of course use the same contrast throughout in which case you’ll need 2 skeins of the contrast."
