Scarves like this are the perfect vehicle for trying out new lace stitches (kind of like sundaes are the perfect vehicle for warm fudge)!
And if you make your scarf in this season's "it" color, then you'll be both stylin' and have gained great experience with lace knitting!
This scarf features two complementary lace panel designs. A delicate snowdrop lace panel runs down the center with a wider, curved leaf lace panel bordering each side. The curved leaf lace panel creates a lovely waved border along the long edges.
The generous width allows this scarf to wrap around your shoulders if the chill factor goes up. Or you can drape and wrap the scarf nonchalantly around your neck like a cowl. Add a shawl pin if you like or just tuck in the ends for another chic option.
However you wear this, you'll have a bold shot of teal in a very feminine lace that will instantly update your outfits.
