Changing Light is a fully reversible scarf or wrap featuring stripes, lace and elegant pointed tips. As you knit, you will travel through playful sections of stripes, lace mesh and garter stitch and have the fun of watching your colors drift into one another.
This knit begins with a diamond-shaped center, knitted in the round from the center out. A photo tutorial for an easy and beautiful cast-on is included in the pattern. Next, two sides of the diamond are worked flat to form one half of the piece; held stitches from the other two sides are then slipped back on the needles and worked in the same way. Choose three of your favorite shades and cast on for this entertaining and dramatic knit.
Instructions are provided for two sizes: S and L.
