The Chalfont Scarf is a wonderful three-season scarf to transition right the way from the first chills of autumn through the winter snows and into the cool evenings of early Spring.
The scarf is fully reversible and has an open, lacy pattern for a stunning result. It can be worn knotted up for a casual look or draped more loosely for a stylish evening accessory.
The pattern includes instructions for three sizes and three different colourways to give lots of options for your next lacy scarf.
