This classic scarf looks great on men or women and its ample size makes for a luxurious, cozy feel. During our initial design meetings, Julie decided she liked the WS of the texture pattern as much as the RS, so we included instructions for each version. Our samples showcase both variations, as well as two yarn options – the Fossil version is knit with Shelter and creates a softer, more pliable fabric, while the Wool Socks version is knit with Loft doubled for enhanced stitch definition and elasticity. Kirkwood is a no-brainer addition to our favorite winter staples!

This scarf is worked flat in one direction from cast-on edge to bind-off edge.
