Color True, we’re not swimming in time at this point, but that’s what our Eleventh Hour Marled Scarf is for! It’s for setting aside the sound of the ticking clock, casting on two strands of Gentle Giant, and knitting a beautiful, sumptuous scarf… All before the clock strikes midnight!

Our original version of this striking scarf used two strands of one color of Gentle Giant, but this year we’re loving a grand scale tweed. By mixing Heirloom White with some of our favorite colors, this mega seed stitch is fascinatingly oversize and wonderfully modern!
