Gothic Forest Scarf
The stitch pattern used for the body of this scarf reminds me of a forest of trees, their branches forming high, mysterious arches. The shape of the arches are gothic in nature and that, plus the muted yet rich tones of the beautiful cashmere from Sericin Silkworks, led to the name for this decadent scarf. This project uses up every yard of the precious, luxury fiber.
The scarf is worked from the bottom up in two pieces that are then grafted at the centre back of the neck. This construction ensures that the arches of the lace pattern point upward on both sides of scarf. With buttonholes on one end, you can button this scarf in numerous ways to hold it in place around your neck.
Pattern contains both written and charted instructions.
