Lacy Maizy Wrap
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H74
Crisp outlines of cable stitches overlay a lace background. This wrap is named after the semblance of ears of corn in the stitch design as well as the corn fiber yarn in which it is was knitted in the sample model shown here.
The cables are carried out to each edge of the wrap, preserving the overall flow of the curving lines.
Normally I would not do fringe on a scarf, but this one called for it – I sort of imagined that the long oval shapes that frame the lace eyelets are like ears of corn, and the fringe is like the corn silk of the tassel.
