“Sometimes when I fall in love with particular stitch pattern, I feel that a simple scarf or wrap is the perfect way to use it. A simple shape acting as a blank canvas is the perfect way to feature intricate patterning—in this case, a delicately textured lace and cable motif. Simple, but thoughtful, details (a Tubular Cast On, broken rib hem, and flat cord selvedge) make the piece special, so you can relax and enjoy maneuvering your stitches to create this beautiful fabric.” – Jared Flood
