The Kassiopi Scarf captures the essence of a holiday in Corfu, with colours reflecting the turquoise of the Mediterranean, lazy summer days and evening cocktails by the pool.
The scarf features a wonderfully textured pattern with a neat seed stitch edging for a refined finishing touch. The pattern is reversible with slightly different looks on each side for versatility. It would be perfect for both a casual holiday look or more formal wear.
The pattern includes details for three different scarf widths – a long, slim scarf worked in a cotton/modal yarn and two wider 100% cotton scarves to provide just the right degree of warmth for a cool summer’s evening.
