This richly textured scarf or stole makes for a festive holiday accessory—and it continues to add the right touch of bling long after the tree is down and the ornaments are tucked away. Especially glowing in a yarn with a bright sheen or a rich halo, this motif could also take on an organic, earthy character when knit in a tweedy natural shade, to appear more like twisted vines or grasses. And while it has a somewhat complex appearance, the stitchwork is surprisingly quick and easy when a last-minute gift is needed.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
