A scarf to warm the cockles of the heart♥

A simple, elegant and luxurious scarf. It’s not just about the texture, this has something quite unexpected .. tuck one end into the little gully and pull it down as much as you like to keep it nice and snug around the neck. Not only is it reversible but unisex too, after all why should the ladies have all the fun?

Bulky yarn makes for speedy gratification, a perfect ‘in the round’ project for a beginner and just as satisfying for an experienced knitter wanting that fast knit in front of the television!

Pattern is written for one size but weight of yarn is given for the borders to enable easy customisation.
