“Dialogue of the wind and waves” is the subtitle that composer Claude Debussy gave his symphonic tone poem, La Mer. Swirling short rows and a wave-like textured stitch evoke the stormy sea in this scarf and hat set. Knit in fingering weight yarn, this set is perfect for spring or fall days when you want a hat and scarf to keep away the chill. Also perfect for bundling up against those cool sea breezes!
