Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2009: “Alma’s Scarf incorporates textural components, color, and lace for a luxurious knitted interpretation of the traditional rebozo. Mareike Sattler combines dramatic knit-and-purl chevron and lace motifs to capture the intricacy of woven fabric and elaborately knotted fringes - in a silk and wool blend for sumptuous drape.”
