When it’s time to shed that heavy muffler but too chilly to go without, a light scarf or cowl in a pretty openwork pattern is a great solution. Warm enough to keep the wind off, but airy enough for seasonal style, this rectangular scarf or cowl in two sizes (petite/tall) is worked in sport weight yarn for transitional weather. The lace stitch pattern is easy to master for lace newbies or knitters on the go. It’s also a fun and easy knit for squirreling away in the gift box, with matching cap and mitt patterns available to make a complete set.

This pattern is both written and charted and can be transferred to your Ravelry Library during checkout.
