This pretty scarf, stole, or infinity loop in several sizes makes beautiful use of a motif inspired by weeping cherry trees in bloom. Trailing branches, filled with buds and new blossoms, make their way along its length in a gently wavering pattern. The highly embossed stitchwork makes for strong depth and stability, even in the silkiest of yarns. While somewhat complex to work, the result it totally worth the effort and the simple rectangular format allows the knitter to focus on the pattern. Gorgeous in a smooth luxury blend, this design translates nicely for cool weather in a rustic wool blend or heavier weight yarn (with needle adjustments).
This pattern uses a dipstitch. See a video tutorial of this stitch here.
