Bundle up in a chunky fringed scarf with a matrix of cables and openwork. The tiny two-stitch crossings can be easily worked without a cable needle, and yarnovers nestled in a background of reverse stockinette allow light to play through the deeply textured fabric. The fringe is worked in durable twisted cords for a playful edge.

Note: The Oxbow pattern includes both written and charted instructions for the lace pattern.
