Meet Sherlock. Inspired by the legendary Mr. Holmes and his renowned houndstooth print hat, our scarf is a modern take on the classic print. The softest cashmere from Inner Mongolia is knit in the round, there is no wrong side. So, the fact that the yarn floats are invisible is no mystery. The result is a scarf that is luxurious and timeless and even perhaps worn by Sherlock, if he could have had one.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
