When Melissa of Sweet Fiber sent me an unexpected box FULL of gorgeous yarns, this cashmere DK begged to be knit up first. The subtle shades of her color and the feel of her cashmere are to die for. And I’ve always wanted a giant scarf that’s super soft, extra wide, and boldly lacy.

The distinct geometric lines in this pattern give some texture to the lace and makes following the motif easier than you’d think. Simple ribs edge the main panel and play off the tips of the final diamond shapes.

It’s big and wide, but not so big that it can’t be tucked into a coat or worn with a blazer as an indoor accessory, and it drapes and falls perfectly around your shoulders. Modifying for length or width is easy to do and instructions are given in the pattern. Exact gauge is not terribly important, but will result in a different size scarf.

This perfect shade of spiced pumpkin says FALL to me, and I cannot wait to pair this with an old denim jacket and pick some apples….

Pattern is both written and charted.
