A light, airy scarf or stole in several sizes (petite scarf/tall scarf/stole) with an allover texture reminiscent of rare white thistle flowers. The highly embossed stitchwork provides strong depth and stability, even in the softest of yarns. While somewhat complex to work, the result is totally worth the effort and the simple rectangular format allows the knitter to focus on the pattern. Gorgeous in a luxury blend, this design translates nicely for cool weather in a more rustic wool or heavier weight yarn (with needle adjustments).
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement.
Finished size: 10(13, 19) inches wide and 56(72, 76) inches long (stretched and blocked)
