This pretty scarf, stole, or cowl in three sizes is a fun and wonderfully portable project, thanks to an easy-to-learn, addictive motif. With its highly contrasted areas of solid and openwork, the fabric filters light to pretty effect and drapes into lush folds when knit in a silky yarn blend. In a springier yarn, the finished piece will be full-bodied with stitch definition that really pops.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
