Cranra (the Irish for a knot in wood/timber) is a rectangular scarf with fringes, and a slipped-stitch motif inspired by wood grain and knots in cut timber.
Cranra is begun by casting on lengthways, and knitting across the width of the scarf. The pattern is worked in single-row garter stitch stripes, with a slipped stitch motif. The yarn is broken after each row. After binding off, the first and last section of stitches are unravelled, and then knotted to form a fringe.
This pattern uses 2 skeins of Olla No.2 in contrasting shades.
