Soft Stripes by Babs Ausherman
I thought this would be a fun and easy knit and a great way to create a striking combination of Moonglow and Sojourn. I often have an easy TV knit for the end of a workday that is visually interesting without being too taxing. Also, these will be great gifts for family members that love a cozy neckwarmer.
