  • A pretty, swirling stitch pattern rises in columns along the length of this airy scarf or stole in three sizes (petite/medium/tall) to add interest for a day outfit or drama with evening wear. Worked with basic lace stitches, the pattern carries the shading of a heathered yarn along its curvy lines; the movement is further accented by furrows of reverse stockinettte ribs to add depth. Overall, the pattern is simple to work with WS rows in knit and purl—it’s a great beginning lace project or good travel knitting for more experienced knitters.
    Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
