This handsome scarf, stole, or cowl in several sizes is complex in appearance, but very easy to work, delivering a stunning result for any skill level. Its heavily textured areas are offset beautifully by lighter openwork stitches that provide contrast in weight and depth. Lacy openings highlight the embossed ribbing, making this pattern a good candidate for silky yarns with a bit of sheen.
