Diagonal Lace Scarf and Wrap Pattern
Churchmouse's lace teacher, Becky Fitch, designed this easy-to-knit, elegant scarf in a fine alpaca blend for lightweight coziness indoors or out. Karen Alfke reworked it in rustic European linen as a wrap for cool evenings in sunny places. Wrap it once, or wrap it twice as a lavish scarf. Whichever way you go, it's the perfect accessory for the 'shoulder' season.
