The Herring Cove Wrap is a thickly cabled oversized shawl inspired by crisp fall air and chilly ferry rides. This wrap is both functional and fashionable: its large size will shut out autumn winds, but the striking cables elevate it from a simple oversized scarf to an elegant accessory suitable for a night out. Although the cables will require your attention, the wrap’s construction is simple—a basic rectangle, knitted flat from one short end to the other, with optional fringe.
