The diamond motif in this sheer scarf is knit to appear half solid and half in filigree, like shimmering mermaid tails and swirling water bubbles. Its delicate lines and silky sheen show off the effect as light passes through the fabric. Makes a great summer accessory worked in iridescent jewel tones or pastels. With its easy to knit pattern and portable size, this project can be toted along for summer knitting on the go.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
