English Lace Scarf

This scarf uses a popular repeating stitch known as the English Mesh Lace Stitch and plays with positive and negative space to create a lightweight summer scarf that’s nice enough to wear at the beach or out for dinner. The linen yarn used is perfect for a scarf that might get a lot of outdoor use as it’s completely washable and dryable.
