Castle Sands Scarf
A stunning wide scarf in a pretty Estonian lace stitch pattern with a gorgeous edging, blocked into delicate points. This shawl is worked from the centre out so that both sides are perfectly symmetrical. The yarn is an unbelievably soft and buttery heavy lace weight yarn, almost a 4ply. Its luxurious softness and fabulous handdyed colourways work so well with delicate lace.
