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.

Suggested yarn:

350 yards of Lace weight
