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.
