Grisou is a small rectangular scarf with a textured pattern made of seed stitch and cables. I designed it thinking of the stories I heard about the old coal mines in the village I grew up. Grisou is an explosive gas and a symbol of the dangerosity of the mines. I thought of those minors with their faces dirty with coal and the little scarf they would but around their neck. This scarf is suitable for an advanced beginner and intermediate knitter. It can very well be a first cable project.
