The Maniototo region of Central Otago, New Zealand is a stunning part of the world. It’s all mountains and arid valleys – icy and freezing in the winter months and dusty and scorching in the summer. A perfect place to grow sheep and an excellent setting for an ex railway line converted to a cycle trail. This cozy cabled scarf is the perfect accessory on those trails in the chilly months. And such fun to knit!
