For cold weather, I wanted an accessory that was both big and bold; something that worked up quickly in heavy yarn and had enough crazy patterning to hold my interest while knitting.
Here’s the result: bold colors, cables, stripes, garter stitch—all of my favorite design elements mixed into one cozy, chunky scarf. Wear it long to show off the details or double wrap it for extra warmth, you’ll want it with you until things thaw out in spring!
