Introducing the stunning Woodland Path Scarf/Shawl pattern. Each row of the Woodland Path scarf/shawl leads you deeper into the beauty of lace when coupled with the softness of the Ivy Brambles Romantica Merino Lace yarn!
Beautiful columns of light twists and swaying leaves make up this gorgeous woodland path inspired piece that can be worn easily as a scarf or gently draped over cool shoulders. Beadwork on the borders reflect gentle drops of dew that gather on the tips of branches in the early morning light.
Sample shown worked in Ivy Brambles Romantica Yarn, Colorway Pine Tree. One skein of Romantica is all that is required for yarn to make this fabulous scarf/shawl. Other required materials include a US #5 (3.75 mm) needle, stitch markers, and a darning needle.
