Ruched Scarf & Wrap Pattern
Our ruched scarf, designed by Jennifer Evans, was created to add subtle feminine flourish to the scarf equation (think of it as ruffles with restraint). We couldn't resist turning the gathered bands on their side with a lacier yarn for an ethereal wrap on a dramatic scale. Wear it as a party shawl, or as an unexpected scarf over a tailored coat. Heaven!

Knitting either the scarf or wrap is pure pleasure–there is a rhythmic breath-like quality about the in and out. We think the finished product reflects this ease and flow. And although the wrap takes a lot of yarn, you may discover you'd like to make more than one. Our original is so very airy and romantic, but wouldn't it be great in black (with or without a little sparkle)? Carol is knitting one for our shop in Rowan's new Kidsilk Glamour. Stay tuned!
