Diagonal Lace Scarf & Wrap
In 2 gauges
Our lace teacher, Becky ffitch, designed this easy-to-knit, elegant scarf in a fine alpaca blend for lightweight coziness indoors or out. Karen Alfke reworked it in rustic European linen as a wrap for cool evenings in sunny places. Or wrap it twice as a lavish scarf. Whichever way you go, it’s the perfect accessory for the ‘shoulder’ season.
