    About Open Arms

    Scarves evoke a lot of memories for most knitters: Chances are, they‘re how we learned to knit, so many of us have very fond memories associated with long lengths of fabric, created by the steady back and forth on, most likely, straight needles.

    Rebekka took our idea for a modern, super wearable scarf and twisted it on its head: Knit horizontally, her design combines subtle stripes of different textures, keeping it interesting to knit and fantastic to wear.

    Add a bit of fringe, and the salt- and-pepper tones of Abundant Earth Fiber‘s Josef & Anni base, and you got yourself a new wardrobe staple!
