The Navigator: Country Roads
The Navigator: Country Roads is a cabled scarf designed for a winter drive. Tuck this scarf snugly around your neck and be toasty warm as you zip around the corners.
Worked in DK weight yarn, the red cables show how the roads on the map wind themselves together and out as the navigator tries to find the right route. Knitting this scarf requires you to pay attention, just like map reading. The cable crosses and background patterns vary as you travel along the winding country roads.
The Navigator is designed to be about 155cm long and 19cm wide. It is easy to add more repeats of the cable pattern if you would like a longer scarf.
The pattern includes full charted and written instructions.
The inspiration for this pattern is my enthusiasm for classic car rallying. I designed it to represent the maps I use as navigator of our rally team. With background patterns drawn from the legends of topographic maps, the roads travel through pine plantations and inundated ground. Th
