A bold accessory is the easiest way to make an outfit pop. Looking for something to put a jolt in your cold weather wardrobe? Enter, Pippi! Pippi is a cabled scarf that knits up quickly in one piece with a super bulky yarn. Simple cables create a braid, while increases and decreases shape the work into a scarf/stole that can be worn several ways.
Toss Pippi around your neck for a statement accessory, or wrap twice and tie up for extra warmth. Fluffy tassel tails at the ends are impossible not to twirl as you walk. Watch out because your cat will love them too!
