From the Designer: Persephone’s Meadow is the pattern that special yarn has been waiting for. You know the one, it’s been sitting at the back of your stash shelf for years because you haven’t found the right pattern to show it off yet. Now you have! Whether your favorite yarn is solid or striped, smooth or textured, this keyhole scarf design will help it to shine.
The lacy stitch pattern brings out the texture of the yarn and helps a smaller amount to go further. Solid bands add structure, and draw out more concentrated areas of color. The size can easily be adjusted as well, both in length and width. This means you can modify it for a different weight of yarn if you prefer.
