Simple cables slope and intertwine across Maremma, a luxurious and stunning accessory. Choose from two versions: knit a stole-sized Maremma in chunky weight Quarry yarn for decadent, yet lightweight, coziness. Or, make a scarf in DK weight Arbor for lovely stitch definition and a perfect balance of bounce and drape.

A classic in either DK or chunky weight, the Maremma scarf is knit flat from end-to-end. Maremma’s striking cable motif is worked from charts.

Please note: the stitch patterns for this garment are charted only.
