Tie on this cuddly, unisex kerchief in three sizes (mini/petite/tall) to give that outfit a jaunty finish or chase off a sudden chill—the smallest size is perfect for either function and tucks away easily in pocket or purse when ducking indoors out of the wind. This easy to work pattern features everyone’s favorite—garter stitch!—for depth and texture with a menswear touch (think stocking stuffer). While set sizes are offered, the simple triangular construction allows for working to a custom depth determined by yarn supply and desire. This design is the perfect choice for a first shawl project, but will amuse and satisfy experienced knitters, too.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
