Knitting designs are often given names long after the piece is complete, requiring the use of a working name during the creation process. My working name for this design is “pastry scarf” for the cruller-looking cable and the brioche accent. Brioche is a fancy bread found in french bakeries. Crullers are twisted donut-like pastries that I remember from my childhood on Long Island. A pink bakery box tied with string is a beautiful thing.
