Pattern Description from Scarf Style: “heading out to a midwinter gala? Running errands in town on a snowy day? Skating upriver through the trees? This down-to-earth scarf will keep you snug whatever you do and its femininity will make you feel at home in your best dress or add a little class to your practical coat. Ivy Bigelow has chosen a simple, tailored lace pattern, based on the Tilting Block Pattern from Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury of Knitting Patterns, for a graceful scarf that isn’t overly fussy. Says Ivy, ‘The tweedy, rustic quality of this soft yarn gives the lace a delicious earthiness. And working with an organic cotton-and-wool blend is as good as eating soul food.’ In an icy blue, this scarf is regal enough for a winter queen.”
