Lace Scarves & Stoles

Elegant and simple, these lightweight dressy scarves and stoles are made in one piece. Using a fine lace-weight yarn and worked on larger needles than you might expect, the knitting goes quickly. And at the finale, there is always a magic moment when the lace is blocked out to show all of its airy beauty.

Lace Scarves and Stoles

Beaded Scarves

Beautiful fashion scarves with beads! Gorgeous results with minimum effort.

Faroese Shawls

The distinctive "butterfly" shaping makes an exceptionally wearable shawl because of the shaped shoulders and elongated ends for optionally tying around the waist.

Faroese Shawls

Triangle Shawls and Other Interesting Shapes

Start at the point or center back neckline with just a few stitches while you become familiar with your yarn and the stitch pattern.

Elegantly Simple Triangle Shawls


Dressy short-sleeved classic-fit lace sweaters with flower and plant themes.
