Part shawl, part scarf, part cowl, Viewpoint is all about versatility. Lightweight and elegant, it pairs well with your favorite dress but is equally at home with a pair of jeans. Wear it draped around your shoulders for drama or wrapped about your neck for more warmth.
Viewpoint is worked in mirrored halves, casting on down the long edges and working short rows to the centerline. The two halves are then knit together using the three-needle bind off technique.
