The recent Disney movie "Frozen" inspired this design. I was listening to the song, "Let It Go" over and over again because the lyrics were very powerful to me. The song, to me, was about letting my past go and not allowing it to define me or put restrictions on my current happiness and potential. Additionally, the beautiful voice of Ms. Idina Menzel makes it all the more powerful.
The specific phrase that inspired this scarf was, "my soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around."
The scarf is an entrelac pattern with a few twists, so I would not recommend this for beginners. There is a snowflake lace border that mimics the outside of a window. This is worked alongside the entrelac pattern so that everything is knit in one piece. Further, every other tier of the entrelac is lace as well. The overall effect is made to look like a window that has been frosted over during an ice storm.
You can use any yarn and needle you want, as this is a scarf, but I would not go higher
