There is something fundamental about zig-zag designs. They are all around us – in the folded layers of rock as you drive through a mountain pass, or in the twill structure of a woven blanket. Zig-zags are dynamic patterns, symbols of change and energy.
The Lamberhurst Scarf embodies this dynamism and captures the energy of this timeless design. The pattern includes instructions for three different versions to give a range of options for the perfect man’s winter scarf. All the scarves are worked in soft wool yarns and are completely reversible.
