A soft, classic scarf is the iconic knitter’s gift—for a special someone or to have on hand for a holiday emergency. This scrumptious example in three sizes (petite/tall/wrap) gets its name from a popular style of chain link with a similar appearance and has it all—yummy texture and versatility in the perfect weight, it’ll be a “go” with a sleek dress coat or a casual tech jacket. Any size will knit up quickly in this fascinating motif comprised of knits, purls, and a few cable crosses.
