Toasty enough for a polar expedition, this scarf is worked with two strands of Shelter held together on large needles. Plump cables of varying scales keep the knitting engaging as the scarf quickly grows to a generous size. The large motifs coil and splice like sailors’ knots while the small ones ripple between. Garter stitch edges keep everything shipshape and Bristol fashion.
Shackleton is worked from one end to the other and the instructions are given in chart form. Special techniques help you achieve perfect edges on all sides of the scarf. Knit it in a color that goes with all your winter wear, because once you’ve wrapped this thermal wonder around your neck, you won’t want to come out until spring.
