Softly-sculpted overlapping curves create warm depth in this criss-cross scarf and wristlet set. Worked in a fuzzy yarn that produces a halo, this set creates a lovely frame for the face and a beautiful change in texture to fill the lapels of a dress coat. The scarf can be knit in two sizes (S, T); wristlets are one size fits all.
