Part scarf, part shawl, Nerida is perfectly thick and squishy for wrapping, winding, and draping as needed in all types of weather. Each border piece is worked separately so that it’s easy to knit on the go, then joined and finished using simple short rows for the body. Though it’s impressively large, this is a rather quick knit that will make a show-stopping gift.
