Perfect for warding off chills on those rainy nights and brisk days, Abuelito is inspired by the sort of scarf you might find in your granddad’s wardrobe.

It’s a triangle shawl, knit from the top down and spiced up with a subtle pattern in masculine colors.

A rustic lace border finishes the look.

Arranmore Light from The Fibre Company, a DK blend of merino, cashmere and silk, is thick and cozy.
