Like two sides of the same coin, Adam and Eve shared a rib and a garden paradise lush with flora, fauna, and as it turned out, danger. This luxurious cowl, scarf, or infinity ring in multiple sizes is alive with organic movement in a rib motif that shares stitches back and forth. While visually complex, the cable pattern is surprisingly easy to work, having simple cable crosses only every sixth row. And if that weren’t enough, the truly minimal effort is rewarded with a fabric that reverses to a voluptuous, equally attractive texture. What’s not to love?
