Pattern description from Knitting Little Luxuries: “This design uses yarns from opposite ends of the spectrum to create distinctly fresh effects: The long scarf is knitted in a metallic silver ribbon to create a slinky, steely piece, while the wrap on page 63 is worked in a soft, fuzzy yarn. The stitch pattern has cables on the sides, which creates an uneven edge and gives the pieces a modern, almost futuristic feel.”
