“No matter how many cabled I scarves make, I always want more. I guess I’m somewhat of a cable glutton. I think cabled accessories add both comfort and sophistication to a man’s look. This scarf features two large, plaited rib cables that periodically interlock with one another over the length of the scarf. Instructions for a tubular cast on and a special flat selvedge are included – details that make even the simplest of accessories special.” – Jared Flood
