A double-knit textured scarf with slip-stitches
An elegant adaptation of a traditional pattern into double-knitting, worked in a luxurious yak-down blend.
This fabric almost seems to be 4 layers thick — without the corresponding lack of drape — since the purl texture stands out so dramatically against the background of knits on both sides. Due to an ingenious use of slip-stitches to really emphasize the hexagonal lattice, the fabric is only linked together in one row out of five, which means that there's very little actual color changing.
