From Sea to Mill Knitted Scarf

Added to cart
Being from Cornwall I have a natural love of the sea but only recently found out about the Cornish Guernsey jumpers (known as Gansey’s elsewhere in the UK). They are the often dark navy blue hand knitted jumpers and tunics worn by the fishermen, utilising knit and purl stitches with the odd cable. This scarf uses a number of the traditional patterns I discovered and I used wool from Coldharbour Mill, just down the road from me in Uffculme so the name Sea to Mill seemed apt.

The scarf is knitted using knit and purl stitches which are both written and charted. There is an i-cord bind off on both sides with increasing with yarn overs and decreasing by knitting two stitches together.
