During WWII many of the young men and women were displaced by war. Many of them were forced from their homes in the city to new homes located in the country. With this move, they often come unprepared for the colder temperatures and climates. This scarf was originally designed to be knit for these children.

A squishy vintage pattern stitch combined with subtle shaping makes this an elastic, warm, but lightweight scarf/shawl. It can be worn on its own over a tank top for a light summer accessory or under a light sweater to provide just a touch of warmth. Try it in a worsted/Aran weight yarn to get a vintage thick, chunky, and warm scarf perfect for winter. This really is a versatile vintage pattern perfect for everyone!
