As the colder weather approaches geese can be seen migrating northwards to overwinter.
Geòidh (Gaelic for geese) features V-shaped ends and overlapping short columns of fagot lace representing the skeins of geese flying up the scarf in formation between the simple cables.
The pattern is charted using StitchMastery and includes full written instructions.
The sample was made using Copley Heriot Tweed, a pure wool DK yarn with 109 yards (100 metres) per 50 grammes. It measured 76 inches (196 cm) long pre-blocking and 6.75 inches (17 cm) wide and 86 inches (219 cm) long after light blocking.
An even longer scarf can be made by working more cable repeats in the middle of the scarf. A slightly shorter scarf (by about 6 inches) can be made by reducing the number of cables between the lace sections. Both variations are specified in the pattern.
Stitches used: ssk, k2tog, p2tog, m1 knitwise and purlwise, yo and simple 2 and 3 stitch cables.
