Motifs lifted from the Art Deco period are combined to create a luxurious surface in this scarf/stole design in three sizes (petite/tall scarf and stole), meant to be worked in a shimmery yarn blend. While the visual effect is complex, the patterns are simple to work, relying on cable tension for movement. Light and dark areas are the result of shifting fabric density. This design is worked in one piece from beginning to end and is easily resized.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
