Pattern Description:

Knit with under one skein of Handmaiden Mini Maiden or from that skein of sock yarn that's just a little precious to use on your feet, it will drape beautifully around your neck and shoulders when a plain old neck scarf just won't do, and will keep you warm during your autumnal forest romps.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
