Hamsa

Description

A fine, featherweight scarf pattern in a luxurious silky yarn, suitable for any climate. An arabesque motif with the appearance of repeating “Hamsa” talismans graces the length of this piece. Simple decreases and all-purl “rest” rows result in a fabric that looks far more intricate than it is to work.
