Pattern description from One Skein: “This ruffle-like cravat is worked in a series of partial circles in the Scalloped Braid pattern from Mon Tricot, 250 Knit and Crochet Patterns (Crown Publications, 1977). This pattern was originally presented as a delicate edging worked with a fingering-weight yarn, but it takes on an entirely different look when it’s worked in bulky yarn. The scallops hook on one another to hold the cravat closed.”
