With an edge-to-edge design and an intriguing graduated stripe pattern, the Petersfield Scarf brings a modern vibe to a classical man’s striped scarf. The scarf is completely reversible and features a deeply textured stitch for extra warmth and softness. It is easy to work and the pattern includes instructions for three different sizes to give a variety of options.
NB: The Petersfield Scarf is also available as a set together with a co-ordinating hat, the Petersfield Beanie Hat. Please click here for more information.
