This wonderful fully-reversible full-colour scarf depicts faithfully two beautiful lighthouses on the Isle of Man (British Isles).
The Isle of Man is an island of extraordinary beauty and variety located in the middle of the Irish Sea. It boasts many magnificent lighthouses, of which my favourites are the Point of Ayre (at the very North of the island facing the Mull of Galloway, Scotland) and Maughold (pronounce: mackold) at the East side facing the English Lake District), being in remote and romantic settings.
The scarf is worked effectively as a double-knit by using single-rib to keep the colours identical front and rear. The colour-changes are done by intarsia techniques. This gives reversible full-colour pictures with smooth surfaces and a soft feel.
