About the Design
This is another great skill-building design. The lace pattern consists of 3 simple stitches which are repeated on every row. The quirky construction makes the fabric reversible, so the fabric peeking through the keyhole openings on both sides of the scarf never show a wrong side.

Whether chunky and casual, silky and elegant, or romantically light as a feather, this scarf can complement any outfit. So, knit it short, knit it long, knit it fine, knit it thick – the design is very adjustable. Samples show Medium, Long, and Even Longer lengths.

Samples are knit in Cascade Yarns Dolce, Kid Seta and Cotton Rich DK (used double), showing a wide variety of textures, drapes and thicknesses. Flair is just 2 skeins away!
