Come fall, I just know I will be that fumbling girl on the sidewalk, bag falling off my shoulder and coffee spilling on innocent passersby, as I gracelessly reach around for my trailing scarf… which has come unwrapped… again. Fess up! I know I’m not alone in this. I see fellow strugglers, cluelessly strutting about with their scarves dragging behind, picking up all the wonders of the city’s floor.

There is a science to securing a scarf. With neat triangular ends and a gently gripping garter stitch texture, this dapper Color Tipped Scarf longs to hold tight and budge-free! And not incidentally, the bright pointy tips provide a delightful pop of color, saving us all from too scientific an approach to scarf design!

Knit up in Purl Soho’s new Worsted Twist, the Color Tipped Scarf is fantastically soft, hearty, and beautifully simple. You can buy all the yarn you’ll need with our Yarn for Color Tipped Scarf kit. One kit makes one adult scarf OR two kids’ scarves. It’s available in three pretty colorways, or create your own from our full palette of colors right here. Here’s to a fumble-free fall, enjoy! -Laura
