Description

This handsome rectangular scarf or stole features a deeply embossed motif for a bold, yet tailored lace look. A bit of simple “wrong side” lace knitting over just a few rows has a big effect here in carving the pattern more sharply; it translates especially well when knit in a smooth yarn with a bit of sheen. This project is a great introduction to a more advanced lace knitting skill—the wrong side work is quite intuitive and logical. Expand your knitting horizons and astound your fans; the small challenge required will be well worth the effort!
