This super-quick scarf or cowl in three sizes (S/M/L] will be a go-to staple in those last weeks before the holidays, but also a fun, portable project any time of year. Knit in worsted weight wool for a sturdy, handsome layer, it’s perfect for the guys on your list. Plus, these pieces are completely reversible; there is no wrong way to wear them. The bold motif is a snap to learn and simple to execute; the sizing is easily adjusted to suit different yardages or yarn weights.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
