Lace + Silk + Mohair = this heavenly lace scarf, which is wide enough to wear also as a light stole. Three panels of lace combine to create a beautiful effect.
The wide center lace panel features a vine lace design with lots of open lace and stitches that appear to meander up the length of the scarf. The lace panels on either side of the center panel are a very complimentary, yet different three-leaf lace stitch pattern. Both lace stitch patterns are a 12-row repeat to keep thing simpler. The side panel lace also creates a lovely wavy finish for the long edges of the scarf.
Knit on size 9 needles to allow the yarn to bloom, this scarf is incredibly silky and light in weight. It will drape beautifully as a scarf, wrapped around your neck and fastened like a double cowl, or nonchalantly worn in any number of ways around your shoulders, like a stole.
It requires only 2 balls of a lace weight silk mohair blend yarn that comes in vibrant colors, like the striking magenta featured in the sample.

This scarf is a beautiful project. I am new to knitting and had some difficulties with some of the harder stitches at first. Also I really had to watch my stitches for errors because this pattern is difficult to take back out! I used a lace weight wool mohair and acrylic blend with size 8 needles. All in all, I love it!
