The Hill House Scarf

Hill House Scarf

The Hill House scarf was inspired by the high-back chairs designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for The Hill House, the house which he designed and furnished for the publisher Walter Blackie. It is double-knit, making it completely reversible and extra cosy.

The pattern requires a total of 440 yards of yarn, 220 yards in each of two colours.
