Two different yarns in contrasting colors combine to create a simple but intriguing scarf. Each pair of rows is worked alternately with Shelter and Loft in brioche stitch. Amplify the herringbone effect with a high-contrast pairing — the sample is knit in Cast Iron and Fossil —or use closely related hues for a gentle glow. Imagine a festive Crosshatch in Long Johns and Cinnabar or a moody version blending Stormcloud and Faded Quilt. Stretch-blocking on wires opens up the fabric to further expose the stitch pattern and give the finished fabric a beautiful drape.
Crosshatch is also available as part of Jared Flood’s first print book, WOOLENS.
