NOTE: We anticipate kit availability (Cedar Square and Rarig) in mid-February.
Rapson is a relatively simple knit, and it's all about straight lines: blocks of color and columns of garter and stockinette stitch, with five accent colors on a neutral background. The scarf's generous width makes it easy to bundle up, and Lore's DK-weight 100% Kent lambswool keeps you warm without extra bulk (those Brits know how to ward off a chill).
Rapson is named for Minnesota architect Ralph Rapson, Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Minnesota for many years. His Modernist, Bauhaus style married art and craft: perfect for a cozy scarf with simple geometry. The kit colorways are named for his best-known work (we rotate kits online as available).
