The Lavender Skies pattern gives you not one, but three beautiful mid-season accessories:
a skinny scarf, a fringed scarf and a cowl.

Each version uses the same motif in five contrasting, nature-inspired colours - think fields of lilac lavender under a bright blue sky on a sun-drenched day. Rows of intricate Woven Shell stitch are offset with the more the subtle Linen stitch to create an interesting and textured piece. If you’ve never tried the Woven Shell before, don’t worry - a full photo tutorial of this stitch is available on the Emmy+LIEN website to accompany this pattern:
