Even though my winters are not white here in Southern California, I love having a chunky winter white scarf to knit and wear!

Especially one that just exudes texture! This one has plenty of texture, with loads of braided cable sections, combined and alternated with brioche rib. It’s a perfectly blended match that results in a fabulous winter white scarf.

Knit in a very soft merino wool in winter white, this scarf is this season’s modern take on a winter classic!

The easy-to-learn stitch pattern knits up fast, creating a nice, thick, and luxuriously textured scarf that can be worn looped with the ends pulled through, wrapped once around your neck, or with the ends tucked in like a cowl. The alternating cables and ribs also creates nicely waved finished edges.

This scarf pattern is an extremely wearable addition to your accessories collection or a great gift knit for men and women!
