Notes

Pattern now available here on Ravelry!

I worked on this design on and off since about September. Christmas presents took over and it got set aside as an idea, and then I officially began working on it again in the new year.
I wanted a reversible scarf, but something that was still intricate and feminine. After swatching many inches in testing, I threw it all in - cables, lace and even beads. I LOVE the result. It was engaging to knit, and the tosh sock works up beautifully to show off all that stitch work. It is just the pick-me-up I need when faced with yet another snow day. I have a feeling this year I’ll be wearing it well into March!
