This scarf offers all the élan of a feather boa, but none of the social or professional consequences of wearing one to work. Leda is as light as a feather, with the lofty warmth of alpaca. For a Spring or Fall scarf, just substitute a less toasty fingering-weight yarn.

Suitable for a first lace project, the stitch pattern should also hold the attention of more experienced laceknitters. The pattern includes written instructions and two charts. The lace pattern only appears in chart form--there are no written lace instructions included.

NOTE: This scarf will want to curl in on itself, so I’d recommend using a yarn that can stand up to a gentle iron after blocking (i.e. not acrylic).
