textured triangle kerchief

Tie this richly textured kerchief on for an evening around the campfire. The nubbly stitch pattern and simple construction make for a fun, engaging knit that will add warmth and color to any outfit. It’s worked from the point upward, so you can make it as small or as large as you like.
