This pretty scarf or stole is worked from hem to center back in alternating bands of textured openwork patterns to take advantage of a yarn with subtle shifts in shading. Aggressive increasing and decreasing within the motif contributes to deep scallops at the ends and playful movement of shading along the length of the piece. As shown, the design is worked in two pieces from hem to center back and joined with a graft. This design could easily be worked in gradient or color block stripes by changing yarn shades at the start of each pattern band.
