Bautista is the epitome of Spring! Delicate and drapey, but at the same time it is substantial enough to to throw over your shoulders to ward off the spring chill. The sideways construction highlights the Lilac Leaf pattern with integrated edging.

The scarf is worked in a garter stitch base, then adds a fun, lightly-ruffled edge that is also integrated with live stitches at each end.

The basic pattern is a one skein fingering weight scarf, but is completely scalable - just add extra repeats to become a larger scarf or shawl.
