This fanciful scarf is designed for beauty as well as warmth. It is wide enough to function as either a scarf or a shawl. Wrap it around your neck as you head out on a blustery day and then rearrange it over your shoulders to arrive at your destination in style. Purl stitches delineate separate panels of lace motifs, adding dimensionality to the fabric and acting as built-in stitch markers to help keep the separate lace sections on track. Worked in two halves that are grafted together, the bottom edges match perfectly!
