This simple scarf is a great pattern for beginning lace knitters, or anyone wanting to practice their knitted-on edging technique. Worked in two colors, it’s a great project to help teach knitters how to see the relationship between both parts of the project (center lace panel & edging). The Small Version shows a color combination with high contrast, while the Large Version’s colors are subtle and tonal. You may wish to work yours all in one color. As always, Knitter’s preference!
