This accessory provides many options. Worked in a rectangular shape just like a basic scarf, the piece employs an amazing textural stitch pattern that makes this whimsical accessory a delight. Inspired by intricate pleating, the pattern transitions into knit fabric with flexibility and wearability. Wear it as a scarf, longer or shorter cowl, a snood, or even a bolero. All these manipulations use minimal haberdashery but award the simplest outfit stunning detail.
