A deliciously squishy scarf or cowl in multiple sizes to knit from soft sock weight yarn. The swirls of its mesmerizing texture are layered with tiny cables and a little openwork to create depth. Despite its complex appearance, the pattern is easy to work, making for a project that travels well and knits up quickly to keep or give as a gift.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
