Tweed shades were important when choosing a yarn for this scarf and the chunky gauge offered by Shetland Chunky means that stitching is fast and texture is highlighted. The traditional tartan/plaid look and tweed is a big trend for 2016/17 season, and will remain a classic in the years to come. Get the free pattern here.
