Here’s a quick little pattern to keep your neck warm and cozy on those cold winter mornings.

This scarf is a quick knit that can be completed over the course of a few days. Worked in the beautifully textured Manos del Uruguay Wool Classica, the pattern’s stitch variation is designed to highlight the natural variation of the yarn as well.

The pattern includes instructions for three sizes: size small (shown in red in the photos) is meant to be worn looped twice around the neck like a little brioche bun; size medium (shown in grey in the photos) can be worn with one end looped through the other for a warm, snug cowl; size large (shown in purple in the photos) can be worn either with one end looped through the other or looped loosely around the neck.

I love to wear this scarf during the winter. It’s one of the few I’ve made that actually looks good under a puffy down coat.

Skills needed:
working in the round
cabling (3 and 4 stitch cables)
slipped stitches
