Inspired by the wearability of a bandana and the natural beauty of the beach, the kerchief’s triangle shape is edged with a pretty little shell motif and accented with garter ridges that look like ripples in the sand.

Made from Hemp for Knitting’s mercerized allhemp6, the fabric just won’t wear out! And it won’t shrink, stretch, fade or pill. Hemp also provides UV protection and only gets softer and more lustrous with washing and drying.

So if you’re getting away to the seashore and walking in the brisk ocean breezes, this little scarflet will keep your neck warm and comfortable. Then later it will remind you of the sand between your toes and the little treasures you saw in the tide pools!
