The Knit Beach Scarf is a lightweight and gorgeous accessory for the warmer months. Take it to the beach, or wrap up your hair when you roll down those windows. And if you need a knit project on the go, the lightweight yarn is easy to throw in a small bag. Might I say perfect for some beach knitting?
