Description

A wide lace scarf is so versatile for late fall and winter, when the wind tries to find its way into every unprotected niche. This pretty rectangle features a shimmery moth motif with a single nupp. Edged in simple faggoting with a lovely scalloped hem, the motif can be read in either direction, so it is well suited to be knit in one piece. A good beginning lace project
