Deco Lines by Jennifer Weissman of ShadyStroll Knits celebrates the outstanding Art Deco architecture that adorns New York City. Weissman used to work near Rockefeller Center and often admired the dramatic geometric forms ornamenting doorways, lobbies and elevators. It only seems natural that she would create a glorious piece by weaving some of these shapes into this cozy reversible scarf.
Deco Lines is shaped like a rectangle with pointed ends, knitted from one point to the other on the bias. As you knit, you will travel through a variety of reversible textures that complement one another as they keep your project interesting. Weissman recommends solid or semi-solid colors to accentuate the texture of the scarf. Fully written instructions are provided, along with an optional chart for one of the stitch patterns. 2 Sizes.

This GOTS certified yarn is specially processed to retain its woolen qualities (the hand) while being environmentally sensitive.
