Color knitting can be challenging in a scarf because stranded and intarsia patterns have a distinct right and wrong side. With a striped pattern on one side and a delicate lace pattern on the other, the embossed-lace technique is perfect for scarves. The bas-relief lace will keep you warm in the winter and add an extra pop of color to your knitting.
