A gorgeous heart lace edging is the centerpiece of this pretty shawlette. Stockinette Stitch hearts are linked to each along the long curving length of this shawlette and are framed with double yarn overs.
Stitches are then picked up and knit along one long edge and worked in Garter stitch short rows to create a gently curved shape and provide a nice contrast in textures.
This scarflette is long enough to drape over your shoulders or wrap loosely around your neck.
It's knit in a merino and silk blend, with wonderful stitch definition and a glorious luster that makes this a perfect accessory for any occasion.
