Oblagon is a large wrap combining stocking and reverse stocking stitch, sections of lace and slanting lines of dropped stitches. - all resulting in a textured fabric with an elegant drape.
Once the pattern is established there are only small changes from section to section, which makes it easy to memorize each part and still offers variation along the way.

The rectangle shape makes it very versatile to wear different ways. - As a scarf it easily goes twice around the neck, or generously around the shoulders as a wrap.

Yarn - Lace (2ply)

Hand-dyed Yarn - For hand-dyed yarn the pattern offers a good contrast without overpowering the subtleness of the dye. - so they both can shine.
