We are so incredibly grateful to our retailers and customers for sticking with us through all the ups and downs of the last two years. Seeing your projects in our yarns, reading your lovely emails, and seeing your comments and social media posts makes the stress of small business ownership worthwhile!

As we continue to adjust, grow the brand, navigate the supply chain, work on new product development, and evaluate our approach to balancing our environmental and social responsibilities as business owners, we wanted to take a moment to say thank you! Please enjoy the Travertine Scarf, a delightfully cosy, squishy, and comfortable accessory designed to keep you warm through the cold winter months as a token of our appreciation.

Worthy of Note
This super squishy, lofty scarf works up quickly in Germantown Bulky. Worked back and forth in one piece, the cable pattern is easy to memorize, and the slipped stitches make for a clean and simple edge.

While the pattern is written for circular needles, if you prefer, you may work on straights. Unless otherwise noted, slip all stitches as if to purl.
