A thoroughly modern, yet romantically classic scarf. The exquisite lace stitch has lots of texture and movement, yet is quite easy to work. The edges are finished with simple 4-st cables.
Knit on size 9 needles using the sport weight Alpaca Silk yarn from Blue Sky Alpacas, the finished scarf drapes beautifully. Wear it bundled and wrapped around your neck, loosely wrapped and draped around your shoulders, or casually thrown over your outfit.
A great knit piece to relegate your lightweight scarves to the back of the closet.
As with all SweaterBabe.com patterns, this knitting pattern includes lace chart as well as written lace stitch instructions.
