This lace and cable scarf or stole is the picture of flirty victoriana—use it to complete a variety of looks from sweet female accomplice to leather and lace time traveler. For the knitter, it’s an engaging mix of textures that are fun to work from its fluttering lace hem through its handsome garter body motif. The pattern is worked in two pieces from hem to center, then finished with a graft for a seamless effect. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
