North and South Scarf

Make an extra-long statement scarf

This scarf is extra-long so it hangs in a dramatic fashion almost to the knees when left straight and unwrapped. Alternatively it looks equally dramatic when wrapped around the neck as many times as possible. It’s made from the same West Country Spinners yarn from Yorkshire as the “North and South Beanie” and shows how different the Lichen colour-way can look depending on the stitch pattern. The orange stripe looks particularly stunning when the scarf hangs straight down the body.
