Moss Stitch Keyhole Scarflette
This unisex design was inspired by the lovely textures of simple stitches. Moss (seed) and garter stitches are complimented by rib to create a classic scarflette.
The ribbed keyhole keeps the scarflette in place while the garter stitch edging adds definition to the moss stitch. The neck section is gently tapered, so it can be folded over the throat for additional warmth and the triangular shaped ends add an understated style.
