Gyllis is an architectural lace scarf knit length-wise. Choose a color of DK weight yarn held together with lace weight mohair silk for a fluffy fabric or knit a simple version with one strand of DK weight wool. Simple lace is worked in sections divided by different locations of increases that give the fabric a dramatic arched shape. The resulting shawl drapes effortlessly around the shoulders.
