Gather some graphic colors and stripe them together for this biased scarf. Choose between a standard small size scarf or a wider large wrap. The honeycombs are knit with slip stitches so you only have to work with one color at a time. You can use as many contrast colors as you like. West Wool Tandem makes a very warm and structural fabric.
