Treat yourself to the romance of La Belle Epoque with an elegantly lacy scarf or wrap in the drapiest yarn imaginable. The scarf is worked vertically while the two wrap sizes are worked horizontally. Choose a variegated yarn to add a colorful dimension to these accessories, or select a solid-colored yarn that will let the lace take the lead. Either way, working in a silk or bamboo yarn is a delight while you're knitting and once you're enveloped in the finished piece!
