This multisized, reversible scarf or cowl will be a cheerful project to knit in those last weeks before the holidays, but also a fun, portable project any time of year. Knit in sport weight wool for a warm, handsome layer, it’s one of those gifts that will suit anyone on your list. Plus, it’s completely reversible; one side looks exactly like the other. The bold motif is a snap to learn and simple to execute; the length is easily adjusted to suit different yardages or yarn weights.
