Once upon a time there was a woman with a very cold neck, and she lived in a land of windy, brutal winters. It was fortunate for her, however, that she was a Knitter and could do something about it. But this woman also had some other peculiarities, two of which were the itch to travel to similarly chilly yet far more picturesque climes, and the lack of motivation to knit fantastically complex scarves that were destined for utilitarian use. You see, our Knitter sought the balance between elegance and simplicity, engagement and distraction. And so it was that she began to knit scarves—scarves that weren’t very complicated but weren’t very mindless, either—and named them after all of the places that she would like to visit. And so it was that she lived warmer ever after, ensconced in her scarves, and now you can, too! I hope you enjoy knitting these scarves as much as I did.
