Description: Classic hats and scarves - pretty clearly from the seventies but really wearable today, (of course width and length of scarves can be adjusted). My favourite is the fisherman's rib scarf (in brown) - a lovely stitch for a scarf being the same on both sides - and also options using a diamond cable (in white) and a chevron stitch pattern (in green). The beanie is in plain rib.
