A handsome garter stitch background is a perfect textured foil for the gleaming diamonds that run the length of this unisex scarf. This is a great beginner lace pattern, with a bit of openwork mixed with everyone’s favorite garter
stitch. Choose a soft rustic yarn blend with some sheen to enhance both the texture and the luscious drape of the final fabric. This scarf is easily doubled and lengthened to make a beautiful wrap or larger scarf.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
