This extra long scarf is knit on extra large needles so it works up quite quickly. With an “old school” look, this scarf goes with just about anything. The jumbo Fisherman’s Rib stitch has a thermal effect, but is still loose enough that you might wear this in the early fall or late into the Spring. Worked with two strands of fingering held together, the oversized stitches have a very fluid drape. Add the tasseled fringe for a playful look or leave it off for a slightly more masculine effect.
