This light, airy cowl, stole or scarf in several sizes features a delicate, textured stitch pattern that works up well in lightweight yarns. Concentrated increases and decreases within the motif contribute to its dramatic shaping and self-scalloping lines, which are emphasized here by striping with contrasting colors. The scarf or stole is worked in one piece and may be knit with a single colorway or gradient yarn if desired.
Sample is knit in Bare Naked Wools Fresh Lace, color A and Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Silk +, color B Peach Harvest
Fresh Lace, Yak + Silk Lace, Kent Lace, Modern Deco Lace, Shetlandia Fingering, or Jacob Fingering
