Safra by Susanna IC


This pattern is available for $7.50 USD buy it now

The inspiration for Safra comes from the interesting textures that nature creates in autumn. The pattern features soft graduated cables and leaf-shaped cables on a reverse stockinette stitch background. Additional texture is created by working few bobbles along the bottom edge of the crescent and the ends of the scarf (CHART ONLY).

This pattern includes two shapes; a traditional rectangular scarf and a crescent wrap. The scarf is worked from a temporary cast on at the center, down to both ends. The elongated crescent is worked from the top down and is shaped using simple garter stitch short rows.
