Product Details

Originally published in Knotions magazine, I designed this scarf to combine traditional Aran stitches and Latvian braids to recreate the distinctive Ogham alphabet. The Ogham scarf is inspired by the old Celtic hieroglyphic language of Ogham (pronounced Oam or Ome) - the earliest known form of written language in Ireland. It was originally carved onto the corners of standing stone pillars, many of which can still be seen today in Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The carved letters are read from bottom to top.

The Ogham Scarf features the Irish words ‘Le grá’/With love which repeat three times in total. Charts are provided for the letters L, E, G, R and A, and also a bonus chart for the reversed L, in case you want the scarf to read correctly from the bottom up at both ends of the scarf (and not have a mirrored letter). The pattern creates an easy-to-wear rectangular shape. Only 1 size of needles is required and 3 skeins of Aran or worsted weight yarn. Written & charted instructions included
