I've always thought of stripes as fun and whimsical, but I love them even more when they are lacy and ultra feminine!
This stole, which easily doubles as a generous scarf, features the epitome of a perfect stripe, IMHO. Lovely, long and lacy, undulating stripes in pink and raspberry run the length of the scarf.
Delicate fringe adds a dramatic flourish. And to make it luxe, it's knit in a gorgeous silk and kid mohair blend yarn that looks as soft as it really is to touch and feel against your neck. I chose to combine a pretty orchid shade with a complementary darker shade, called Raspberry, but the yarn does come in many other elegant jewel-tone colors.
This scarf is worked side to side, but the long rows are well worth the results! Smaller Scarf size (only needs 2 balls of the yarn!) instructions included as well.
