This light and airy scarf or stole in three sizes (S/M/L) has a gorgeous allover motif that reminds us of delicate, early spring blooms. The heavily textured pattern makes the most of light yarns that lack body; it will add depth to cotton, linen, and silk blends. Worked in a heavier yarn on larger needles, the effect is unabashedly lush and sexy, especially if the fiber has a bit of shine. The piece is written to be worked in two sections and grafted at center back; while somewhat challenging, with a few rows that include “wrong side” lace stitches, the effort is worth the stunning result in the especially pretty, deeply scalloped edges.
