Observatory Gate is a wide cabled scarf inspired by an intricate wrought-iron gate in Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens, which marks the way to the old Melbourne Observatory. The scarf’s all-over cable pattern ebbs and flows over a background of reverse stockinette, creating a thick and cosy wrap perfect for winter walks.
