Chill Chasers

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

Deep winter may be in the forecast but there are more than a few ways to chase away the biting cold, sitting by a roaring fire with a cup of hot cocoa, flipping through pictures of last year’s tropical vacation or twenty minutes of jumping jacks should do the trick.  To look warm and stylish at the same time you might want to try one of these hot-hued chill chasers that are as much fun to knit as they are to wear.

Book 5 In Soho from Malabrigo features fifteen dazzling designs to cover your neck and shoulders in the silky soft luxury of merino wool-
