A yummy scarf in two sizes (P/T) or cowl in three sizes (S/M/L), that features a delicious textural mix of garter stitch stripes kissed by cable crosses. Knit in a springy sport-weight yarn, the fabric will drape beautifully but still have plenty of body to form a warm cocoon around the neck and shoulders. The easy to knit motifs make for a completely portable project that speeds along to help you meet that gift giving deadline.
Substituting yarn weights and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
