Classic cables alternate with openwork in this jacket. Worked in separate pieces, the pattern creates a self-scalloping lower edge. The short, set-in sleeves are finished with reverse single crochet, as is the body and small, stand-up collar.

Boccioli Infinity Scarf

Boccioli Infinity Scarf

Boccioli (blossoms in Italian) is an infinity scarf worked sideways to the desired length, followed by some grafting. Its boldest feature is in its simple lacework that’s enlivened by small bobbles in a contrasting, yet delicate, color. The lace pattern resembles the leaves of Italian heirloom zucchini, with flowers on the top of some branches, each one presented in different lengths to mimic a natural flowering pattern. The design has intentionally a vintage feel, reminiscent of old-hand embroidery with its small bobbles integrated in the lace stitches and the use of a color choice with mild contrasts.
