The main feature of the Nicholas Scarf is the rectangular checks in different shades of blue, with just a little hint of white and red to add color and separate the rows of checks. Being worked in brioche stitch, the scarf is perfectly reversible and the colorwork is made using only one color at a time. Nicholas makes the perfect gift for the city traveler on your list.View Project
