A wardrobe essential that you will love for a long time, South Head is a rectangular shawl using contrasting blocks of reversible stitches. Wear it around your neck on a breezy beach walk or wrap it around your shoulders on a chilly Summer’s evening. Addictive eyelets alternate with soothing garter stitch to create a very relaxing knitting experience in Canopy Fingering.
