Mountain Laurel - Elizabeth Smith (Digital Download)


This asymmetrical scarf/shawl combines simple stockinette stitch and eyelet details with the visual interest of a marled fabric -- created by double-stranding a Fino Mini-Skein Set with a Fino full skein. Mountain Laurel is relaxing knitting that’s still interesting, with color changes that keep you excited to see what’s next! ///// FINISHED SIZE 48” high along selvedge at beginning of RS rows, 54” along selvedge at end of RS rows, and 34” across top edge, after blocking MATERIALS Manos del Uruguay FINO (70% extrafine merino wool, 30% silk; approx. 490 yds/100 g): 1 sk MC.
