Like the aperitif it is named
for, this scarf is delicate froth and sweetness. Knit in
one piece from one end to the other, it is easy and fun to
work, delighting the hands and the eye.
The main feature of this pattern is the
Indian Crossed Stitch which is used throughout the design.
The two side borders are picked up and knit in a self-curling
reverse stockinette stitch. Each corner is finished with
a long, elegant tassel.
Use any combination of solid colour with a coordinating variegated
handpainted yarn to mix up the cocktail you prefer.
