When you need a soft extra layer, then there's nothing like the luxury of a knitted wrap. Warm, soothing and sophisticated it envelops you and provides just the right degree of warmth just when you need it.
The Scottswood Stole features a reversible stitch pattern with two completely different looks. One side has echoes of a traditional woven fabric while the other has a modern cubist feel. Drape it gently around your shoulders or pin it into place with a silver shawl pin to add an elegant final touch.
The pattern includes instructions for three different sizes and the wrap can be worked in either a baby alpaca yarn or a soft merino/cashmere.
