    PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
    Scarves and wraps often serve as ideal blank canvases for the exploration of captivating stitch patterns. Afton was born out of a desire to bedeck a simple, wearable shape with the intricate allover patterning of delicately textured lace and cable motifs. Designed with thoughtful details (a Tubular Cast On, broken rib hems, and flat cord selvedges) and written with instructions for working three widths with Peerie, Loft held double, or Shelter, Afton is one to take on for the pure enjoyment of creating beautiful fabrics to wrap up in.

    Designer: Jared Flood

    CONSTRUCTION

    This scarf/wrap is worked in two pieces, each from the cast-on edge to the center. The pieces are then joined using Kitchener Stitch.
    The two-piece construction allows for each half to be mirrored over the center line; scarf/wrap is perfectly symmetrical when worn.
    This pattern is written for three weights of yarn, and for a range of different sizes in each yarn.
