Knit something special for your inner flapper!

Verity Browne, a sleuth created by author David Roberts, is a mass of contradictions, and a complex protagonist for a mystery series. She’s a card-carrying Communist journalist with a rich daddy and a British Lord for a love interest. Her radical leanings are tested by the real-life political events that color the background of her 1930s historical mysteries. A serious journalist, she was prepared to rush off at a moment’s notice to wherever in the world a news story was unfolding. Verity was no exception, and her passionate commitment to political and social causes sent her racing after big scoops.

This small but practical scarf wraps comfortably around the neck and is adjustable, with a convenient split in the ribbed knitting. Small mother-of-pearl buttons and contrast edging embellish the scarf ends with a bit of brightness.

3¾“ (9.5 cm) wide and 32” (81.5 cm) long.
