Product description

Inspired by the curves of orchid leaves against the beams of a domed greenhouse, lace flows into twisted rib in both the Ensata scarf and cowl. Both are worked in worsted-spun, fingering weight Peerie yarn to highlight the texture of the lace and ribbing. The scarf can also be knit using laceweight Vale yarn to create an airier fabric.

The scarf is worked flat from end to end. The cowl is worked circularly from the bottom up.
