A cèilidh in Scotland and Ireland is social gathering – often where stories are told, food is eaten, and dances are held. This knit was inspired by those dances, with intertwining cables, and gentle twists and turns, mimicking the dancers on the floor as they twirl about.
This infinity scarf/cowl is knit flat, blocked, then joined together creating a seamless-looking piece with uninterrupted cables. Flanking each side of the cèilidh cable is a defined trellis cable, providing support to edges, creating a structured piece that’s sure to keep your neck warm and cozy all autumn and winter long.
