Pattern Description:

Moving into a neighborhood just west of Kansas City's upscale, outdoor shopping center taught me a lot about street style. Westport, a popular hangout for a group of people I would later know as "hipsters", was a veritable treasure trove of zany characters. For the first time, I realized you could do more with a scarf than just throw it over your shoulder in the winter time. My contribution is also a bit offbeat; it is worked from tip to tip and is scattered with tiny, textural circles and a wide lace border.

4-page PDF includes both a chart and written instructions for the lace.
