Cables serve as the framework for a suspended lace mesh traveling down the length of this innovative accessory. Combining simple, easily-worked elements into something entirely new, the scarf is inspired by Tudor-style windows, in which many small panes of glass are held together by strips of metal. Soft, blockable alpaca yarn lends both drape and warmth, while a simple picot edging adds a refined touch.

About the Designer: Ruth Nguyen
Ruth Nguyen learned to knit at age seven, with the result that over a decade later she still plays with sticks and string. She lives with her family on 60 acres in rural South Carolina. In her spare time she enjoys theology, history, and medieval literature, with a side benefit being that big fat books lie open while she knits.
