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.
Strong bands of deepest wine-red contrast with a soft mid-grey for a stunning look. The scarf ends are worked with a lighter stripe effect while the central thick-and-thin banded repeat brings a strong colour focus to the neckline fold or wrap.
The textural stitch has a lot of depth and character giving a warm finish for the cooler days ahead. The scarf is completely reversible and is easy to work. The pattern includes instructions for three different sizes so you can select the best size to knit for your next winter scarf.
