This handsome scarf has universal appeal—piled on over a rustic handknit sweater or tucked it into the neck of a sleek dress coat, it will be a winter favorite for men and women alike. The pattern—fast and fun to knit—is a great candidate for gift knitting and stash busting. Worked back and forth in a flat construction, the size is easily adjusted to suit your taste or yarn supply. And finally, this project is perfect for beginning lace or cable knitters and those on the go; once memorized, it travels very well.
