A gorgeous cable panel and lacy leaf panel travel in perfect harmony along the length of this generous rectangular stole (or scarf).
Both stitch designs gently wave in sync, creating a pretty curved edge along one long edge. Knit in the fabulous Ultra Alpaca yarn from Berocco for a very luxe feel, stunning heathered color, and great stitch definition.
