This pattern features an unusual increase that allows a true grid-work of lace with a yarn over centered at the point of each diamond. With only 2 styles of diamonds, Colona is repetitive and easy to memorize, making this a good traveling project. Serena is a wonderful yarn that combines the durability of cotton with the softness & warmth of baby alpaca.
Instructions for the small scarf are given first, followed by directions for the large scarf in parentheses. If there is only one number, it applies to both sizes.
