Pressed Rib Cap & Muffler - from Churchmouse
We fell in love with a handsome muffler in a favorite designer's shop. On closer inspection we discovered that it was simply K2/P2 ribbing. What, we wondered, made this scarf so special? It was the finishing. The ribbing was pressed flat which gave the fabric a soft, elegant hand. We've added a companion watch-cap with a nice 4-part decrease that's a little more finished, a little more refined.
