“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” –Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

The short days of winter are an excuse to bundle up in cozy layers. The Snowberry scarf is a satisfyingly quick project that will adapt to almost any yarn, and almost any gauge.

You cast on and knit until you’re done (or run out of yarn). It is also a good introduction to working with Brioche stitch. You begin with only a few stitches, but working regular Kf&b increases as you go, it quickly grows into a lofty textural rib, accented with snowball-like pompoms that will keep you as warm and cozy as a quilt when the snow falls.
