Description

Rich texture with a little openwork sets a distinctive tone for a scarf or wrap (scarf/wrap). This eye-catching design will appeal to men and women alike and may be easily resized as desired. Worked in an intermediate stitch pattern that is soothingly repetitive but never boring, this project is an excellent choice for a first attempt at openwork; it is also portable and easily memorized for knitters on the go. In either version, this design works up beautifully in a naturally squishy, airy fiber—the perfect thing for a skein or two of specialty farm yarn.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
