Deliciously deep, soft cables fold and twist coyly around this hat and scarf in two sizes (S/L), making the most of a light, airy luxury yarn. The hat is worked entirely in the round while the scarf is worked flat in simple cables that are easy on the hand and eye (options for straight or infinity scarf included).
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
