Part statement piece, part practical wardrobe staple, the Madison Scarf was inspired by runway fashion. Wear it long and dramatic or wrap it around your neck for warmth. The piece begins with two rectangles that are worked separately and expand to cover each shoulder and ends with a high, cozy neck. The back and front are joined with a simple three-needle bind-off.
