Pure silky softness glides through your fingers as you knit this one-ball beauty!
A very pretty lace pattern that only uses basic decreases and yarn overs evolves nicely as it runs the length of the scarf. The placement of the decreases and eyelets form curves that evoke the loveliness of an ornate chalice.
A few stiches in Garter stitch along both edges give them a subtle and neat finish.
Knit this highly-giftable scarf in any of the many kid mohair/silk blends of lace-weight yarns (see materials section for yarn options). An amazing stash-buster!
