The edges of this piece are worked in a reversible cable- which looks fantastic on both the right and wrong sides. The buttons give you options to wear it as a scarf, cowl, or around the shoulders buttoned behind the back.
This piece is delightfully bulky- for wrapping around your shoulders when Autumn winds blow, or for wrapping around and around your neck to keep winter chills at bay. For a less bulky version, try knitting it in a lighter weight yarn like Harrisville Designs’ Highland, or for a wrap, increase the stitches in the center and work it up in an even lighter weight yarn like Harrisville Designs’ Shetland.
A note about the buttons: This scarf gives excellent opportunity to showcase a fantastic and special set of buttons. These beautiful handmade buttons were made by Wooly Moss Roots.
