Wrap up in a big luscious stole with an architectural motif of traveling ribs that gather and diverge. The deep texture adds cozy warmth as well as visual interest, and the charted motif is easily memorized after a few repetitions. Foundry is built with thoughtful details like slipped rib selvedges that keep the long sides straight and tidy, and buttons allow for converting the scarf to an oversized cowl.
