Reversible Cable Neck Wrap & Scarf
One big, luscious, lofty cable, in a reversible rib so it’s just as gorgeous on both sides. Wrap the shorter version various ways with a pin or a big button. We sewed two tweedy buttons together back-to-back for a jumbo ‘cuff link’ and buttoned them through the holes created by the cable twist. You can share the long, handsome muffler with a man if you like.
The yarn is held double throughout, so the pattern knits up in a hurry for a last minute gift or quick winter warmth.
