Forked ribs crisscross a fabric of variable-width columns punctuated by cartridge rib in this handsome unisex scarf. The cables distort the wider stockinette portions enough to create sinuous rivers beneath the geometric top layer. Worked from end to end with tubular edges and garter stitch selvedges, the Proof Scarf is six feet of gorgeous texture to double about your neck. Pair it with the matching Proof Hat for unbeatable winter style in your favorite color from the Arbor palette.
