Watershed - Scarf

About Watershed

Watersheds inspired this gorgeous reversible shawl - its cables diverge and converge, like water flowing through a watershed, against a garter stitch background that represents the land. The gentle transition from one cable pattern into the next forms bookmarks the ends of the scarf for one of the most meditative knits we’ve ever published.
