Kimpton Scarf and Wrap
Simple yet sophisticated, this is the perfect accessory for Spring and Summer. It is worked lengthwise with a reversible openwork design which makes it lightweight yet warm enough to ward off any evening chills.
The pattern is easy to knit and is worked in a cotton mix yarn which has great stitch definition and a lovely drape. Instructions are included for three different sizes to give two lengths of scarf and a wider version which is just right for a wrap or stole.
