The Bybee scarf is ready to be your slow fashion wardrobe staple! The subtle graphic motif, comprised of either two or three colors, complements refined and folksy outfits alike while still leaving space for playful self expression. Whether worked in worsted-spun Peerie or woolen-spun Loft, Bybee’s width may be easily customized by adding or omitting pattern repeats.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.
