This fanciful rectangular scarf or stole features a deeply etched motif with plenty of textural interest to move the eye for a fascinating effect. When knit in a fine lace yarn, the linework will stand out in stark relief against a sheer background fabric. A mix of simple and complex lacework will keep this project interesting for intermediate and experienced lace knitters who want to stretch their skills. Be assured however that the wrong side work is quite logical and easily mastered with repetition—the stunning results are well worth the effort!
