Bundle up in a chunky fringed scarf with a matrix of cables and openwork. The tiny two-stitch crossings can be easily worked without a cable needle, and yarnovers nestled in a background of reverse stockinette allow light to play through the deeply textured fabric. Oxbow is worked from one end to the other with garter stitch selvedges, and instructions for the diamond motif are both written and charted so you can choose your preferred format. The fringe is worked in durable twisted cords for a quirky, tactile edge.
