Cozy enough for working on the water or just for fending off the elements on a blustery day, this generous scarf is plush with panels of trinity stitch and interlacing cables. Tiller is more than six feet of toothsome knitting, worked from one end to the other with a tubular cast-on and bind-off for neat and durable edges. The handsome net of cables is intuitive to knit, so you’ll quickly find a comfortable rhythm. And the trinity stitch yields deep texture in the flanking panels, mimicking the appearance of small bobbles through paired triple increases and decreases that are simple to work. Tiller will also introduce a new edge technique into your repertoire: wrapped chain selvedges have a similar appearance to garter stitch, but yield a cleaner and more structured straight edge that’s useful for all kinds of projects.
Knit this scarf in your favorite bright hue of Shelter to beat the winter doldrums or select a warm neutral to pair with any outfit when the air turns chilly.
