Product description

Scarves and wraps often serve as ideal blank canvases for the exploration of captivating stitch patterns. Afton was born out of a desire to bedeck a simple, wearable shape with the intricate allover patterning of delicately textured lace and cable motifs. Designed with thoughtful details (a Tubular Cast On, broken rib hems, and flat cord selvedges) and written with instructions for working three widths with Peerie, Loft held double, or Shelter, Afton is one to take on for the pure enjoyment of creating beautiful fabrics to wrap up in.
