Watching snowflakes drift slowly down while waiting for the bus home, the air is crisp and fresh. Thoughts of hot chocolate and a crackling fire bring feelings of anticipation and homeliness. You snuggle your chin closer into the softness of the scarf feeling as though wrapped in a cozy blanket.
This scarf is a fun knit that is mostly worked in stockinette for simplicity, but kept interesting by its angular shaping. The blocks of contrast with a pop of colour give it visual interest along with some subtle texture and bit of eyelet lace. Worked in bulky yarn it makes a bold statement and is super cozy to wear!
