Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “Elegant and long, soft as silk, this plush scarf wraps twice around the neck with ends to spare. Look closely and you’ll see that the cable pattern is the same on both sides. Lisa Daniels has made the pattern reversible by using a ribbed pattern for the cable panel and by turning the cable on alternate sides of the scarf. A wash in hot water and a spin in the dryer give the chenille fabric the shimmer and feel of vintage velvet. Wear the scarf with a silky lingerie top or a tailored jacket.”
