Hooded scarf "Iseult"

FASHIONABLE YET practical, hooded scarves are fun to make and wear. This design by Bergere de France features elegant cables and a patterned rib, and is finished off with chunky tassels on the ends of the scarf and the peak of the hood. It’s knitted here in an aran-weight blend of wool and alpaca from Bergere de France, called Pure Nature. This rounded, roving yarn comes in a palette of eight soft shades, achieved using 100% natural dyes.
