Lamberhurst Scarf

Zig-zag patterns are some of the most dynamic knit patterns that we knitters have in our repertoire. They reflect designs and shapes that we see all about us every day, such as the folds in the rock strata of a mountain pass or woven twill patterns, yet they retain their modernity and energy.

This is the 5th in a series of 12 blogposts featuring stitches from our new Reversible Knitting Stitches book and showing some of the items that can be made from them. Today I am featuring the Winding Path stitch pattern from Chapter 8 of the book and a man's scarf, the Lamberhurst Scarf.

Winding Path is a very contemporary stitch with sharp zig-zag lines. It is fairly easy to work, with an easily-memorised 4-stitch repeat. This makes it a very good stitch to choose for larger projects such as table runners, blankets and throws as you can pick the projects up when you have a quiet moment and add a few more rows. Before you know it, the item is finished!

It is also a wonderfully graphical stitch, with the sharp angles and zig-zags catching the light in an interesting way. This makes it an excellent choice for a man's scarf. 

In the Lamberhurst Scarf, the pattern captures the power and dynamism of this timeless design. Broad and narrow bands alternate in direction to give an ever-changing pattern of light and shade. The knitting pattern includes two versions: a shorter draping design and a longer scarf for wrapping around the neck. Both are worked in a crisp merino yarn and are completely reversible.
