Jazz up a jeans jacket or blazer with this versatile little kerchief. Bead its filet tails for a necklace look, roll the middle to give a mini-shawl collar, add a fancy brooch or stickpin, wear it backwards for a slouchy cowl look—any way you style it, you’ll frame your face with softness and warmth.
To keep or to gift, this project works up quickly, requiring very little yarn—meaning you can afford to indulge in a luxury product. Choose a yarn with good stitch definition. You want the vertical rows of slip stitch to stand out. Sport weight yarns or blends with a nice sheen and a good drape (such as alpaca, silk, or bamboo) are perfect choices for this pattern. Mirasol Nuna, Fyberspates Scrumptious, or the equivalent would be good choices. Also consider Alpaca Silk by Blue Sky.
