The Miramar Scarf is named for a road in the hills of Ventura where (unsurprisingly) you have stunning views of the ocean. The sparkling light on the waves is echoed in the seed stitch paneling on the scarf, while the lace sections remind me of the wake left behind the sailboats you can often see from up on the hill. The bobbles are, frankly, just for fun.

This scarf is a large scarf that grows from a provisional cast-on at the center and comes to a point at either end. The ends are adorned with tassels.
