Mr. Nelson can appreciate good materials: he knows fine wood and good beer, he’ll appreciate a good looking worsted weight yarn—but he doesn’t want to wear things fancy. He likes his knitwear to be classic.
Mr. Nelson Hat and Scarf are suitable for the most beginning knitter, but advanced knitters will find it a satisfying project — especially with a great tweedy wool.
