This richly textured infinity scarf or wrap is meant to wind you in pure luxury when the cold winds blow. Especially glowing in a yarn with a rich halo that catches the light, this motif could also take on an organic, earthy character when knit in a tweedy natural shade, to appear more like twisted vines or grasses. While the result has a somewhat complex appearance, the stitchwork is surprisingly quick and easy—even for lace beginners—when a last-minute gift is needed.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
