Pattern Description:

In Chinese mythology, the sky ladder connects heaven and earth, enabling gods and humans to travel between the two. The "ladder" may take the form of a high mountain, mythical tree, tower, rainbow, or cobweb. Appropriately, this project is a squooshy piece of heaven to knit in a variety of shapesscarf, (petite/tall wrap)[baby blanket, throw]for lightweight warmth on chilly spring days. Natural yarn colors will enhance the finer details in the cable and lace textures throughout, while richly-dyed colorways will bring their openwork and depth into focus. With all shapes knit in one piece, the repeating motifs are surprisingly easy to work on larger needles, for a relaxing and satisfying project to snuggle up with on winter evenings.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
