Bold and dramatic, Chess is a unisex cowl or scarf that’s soft against your neck, long enough to wrap, and interesting to knit. This design uses a slip stitch pattern, then pairs it with ribbed lines to give a checkerboard effect, finishing with an I-cord for a clean edge. The knit fabric is beautifully textured and fully reversible -- a perfect twist-and-wrap infinity cowl or ample scarf that’s long enough to wrap snugly with plenty left to hang.
