What’s more comforting than a big, squishy, comforting scarf to wrap up in on chilly days? Dakota by Nina Talbot is a grandly-sized scarf/stole for crisp fall days to bitter winter nights. This 2x2 rib + cable scarf is an intuitive and fun design to keep your fingers busy this fall! The scarf is worked in one-piece from the bottom up; the cable charts are mirrored at each end to create visually symmetrical balance.
