Multilayered Tube Scarf and Shawl
Pattern description from Alterknits: “This project is a simple knitted tube through which a length of fabric is slipped. The variations are endless because you can easily change the yarn you knit with and/or the fabric with which you pair it. I love the juxtaposition of the fluffy mohair-blend yarn and the luxurious silk chiffon fabric shown here.”
