Statement Scarf

Although the calendar says Spring, we’re definitely still having some cool days here in Canada and makers gonna make!
I’ve created this stunning statement scarf to share with you. Not only will it keep you snuggly warm, it also makes a bold and beautiful statement.
And if you’ve been dying to try your hand at knitting cables, this is perfect for you.

 As always, feel free to switch to your favorite yarn and the appropriate size needles. The yarn I chose is soft and chunky, so it knits up quickly and feels wonderful against the soft skin on the neck.Statement Scarf
