Theodosia is a scarf designed to show off the wonderful colorways of Malabrigo Yarn Sock. The seemingly randomly-placed cascading puffs of puckered fabric within three columns are made by combining paralleled lines of increases and decreases, thus creating a modern textural effect that highlights the subtle color variations in kettle- or hand-dyed sock yarns.
