Darlington Lace Scarf & Wrap
Perfect for summer dining or an evening event at the theatre, the Darlington Lace Scarf & Wrap will add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Wear the wrap draped over your shoulders or opt for a more casual look with a slim lacy scarf to team with your favourite jeans.
The pattern is worked in a beautiful reversible stitch which resembles a cool waterfall. The top and lower edges feature a co-ordinating closed pattern which makes the items hang perfectly.
The pattern includes instructions for three different sizes to give a slim scarf in two lengths or a lovely draping wrap which would be perfect to complete an evening ensemble.
