I suppose I should be knitting tank‐tops and summer cardigans, but instead I have a pair of warm gloves on my needles and am thinking of a new scarf or cowl to follow. Winter is definitely not finished yet!
The stitch is called Irish Squares and features short sections of a 2x2 rib bridging over wider squares of Irish Moss Stitch. The ribbed sections of the pattern draw in while the Moss Stitch expands widthwise, giving a wonderfully curving appearance to the design.
The pattern looks complicated to knit but is surprisingly easy once you get going, so the scarf would make a good next‐level design for a beginner knitter wishing to stretch their wings.
Until next time – Happy End‐of‐Winter Knitting!
