Flow is that space we get in sometimes when we’re making things. Time seems to stand still, the world fades away, and we create freely. Sometimes we say we’re “in the zone” when this happens. It’s a magical place that exists between anxiety and boredom, skill and challenge. This scarf is simple in construction and allows you to “go with the flow” as you knit, winding gently back and forth, reminding you to relax, center yourself, and just create. Switch from a scarf to a cowl by sewing the ends together for continuous Flow.
