Product description

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.

  • Pattern specs

    GAUGE

    • 13 stitches & 40 rows = 4″ in Brioche Stitch with Size A needle(s), after stretch-blocking


    Note that for Brioche Stitch, each elongated stitch in a column of knit stitches represents two rows; when you count these it will appear that 20 rows = 4″


    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Brioche Fabric)

    • One 32″ circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 4 mm (US 6)


    Size B (for Tubular Cast On; optional)

    • One 32″ circular needle one size smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)


    A circular needle is required in order to slide the piece back and forth while working the stitch pattern.

    Note: if you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
