Pattern Description from A Fine Fleece: “Cat’s Eye is a Shetland-inspired scarf using a faux cat’s eye lace pattern as opposed to the traditional Shetland stitch, which uses yarn overs on both right-side and wrong-side rows. All those yarn overs are a recipe for disaster, if you ask me, not unlike leaving your knitting available to a kitten’s whims! Sparkle and color are represented in the green handspun version with Angelina. The Frog Tree Alpaca natural white is absolutely the most perfect scarf yarn and is loved by cats far and wide.”
