A quick knit, this simple scarf in Jaeger Merino Aran. The double moss stitch gives a nice tweedy fabric which doesn't curl and the five fifty gram balls knit up to the length my husband needs to provide a loop of face coverage in the frosty weather. Very satisfying to have the right amount af a suitable colour in the stash, instead of having to buy more yarn. Also in evidence is the taupe sweater I was knitting when I started this blog. This has a simple geometric texture, but somehow looks modern because of a tiny design feature - garter stitch for a couple of rounds after picking up for the neck-band.
