FiarIrish Girlie Knits
Fiar, the Gaelic word for slant or crooked, seemed like the perfect name for this infinity scarf. The zigzags created by the chevron pattern twist, turn, and slant, creating lovely lines of color. Have fun with this scarf by choosing different colors or using up your leftovers!
