Go big. Ninety-seven inches of Shelter in a glorious bright hue will let you stride up Lexington Avenue in any weather. This colossal fringed scarf is worked side to side with a reversible lace fan pattern that produces a gently waving edge. Smart buttoned pockets, worked in the same fan stitch and sewn on, are the icing on the cake—or maybe the cat’s pajamas.
