But when Herod’s birthday was kept, the daughter of Herodias (Salome) danced before them, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask. -- Matthew 14:6-7

The simple lace pattern of this scarf accentuates movement, instead of distracting from it, while still being substantial enough to use as a practical accessory. The ends are designed to be attached to bangles or worn on the fingers, or drape it in your own artistic way. The pattern allows the scarf to be made as long (or short) as desired. Size shown is 6” by 212”. Pattern includes both written instructions and chart.
