Pattern Description:

This sheer rectangle scarf features a pinwheeling arabesque motif of the kind found in Islamic art and architecture throughout Andalusia and southern Spain. Lace knitting on both sides of the fabric produces crisp lines and large eyelets, as well as pretty self-edging along hems and selvedges.
Use of different weight yarn and/or needles will result in an overall variation in size.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 10.5"W x 39"L (stretched and blocked)


  • 350 yards of any fine laceweight yarn with 275 or more yards per ounce
  • size 3US (3.25 mm) needle or size to obtain correct gauge; a needle with a slender, tapered point is highly recommended

Suggested yarn:

350 yards of Lace weight
