This scarf is worked in one piece, beginning at the lower edge. The lace border is knit, and then short rows are worked to form a long, shallow, slightly asymmetric body. An i-cord bind off is worked at the top, providing a stable edge. Charming details like dropped stitches and slipped stitches will keep you entertained during this relatively quick, yet enjoyable knit.
Lace pattern is in both charted and written forms.
