We love large dramatic scarves made from wispy, featherweight fabrics. This scarf is of generous width and length, providing great volume around the neck when worn with multiple wraps. The beautiful lace motifs were inspired by Sharon Miller’s newest book “Love Darg Shetland Shawls.” These delicate, historic motifs are worked on both RS and WS rows, though the shallow (4-row) repeat keeps the knitting from becoming too fussy. This has definitely become a team favorite in our studio – we hope you like it too!
