Grape Hyacinth Lace Scarf
Strong diagonal lines of slanting decreases and yarn overs create a striking pattern that neither gets lost in the beautiful complexity of Noro's Silk Garden nor competes with it. Drooping bell shapes appear to hang from diagonal "stems" in varying shades much like the Grape Hyacinth.
Instructions are provided in the pattern for both wider and/or longer sized versions. The sample shown is worked as the narrow version.
