The Miramar Scarf is one of my earliest patterns and is being rereleased this year. It features panels of seed stitch and bobbles, and each end comes to a point. Here you’ll find links to buy the pattern online, an easy shopping list, and lots of photos.
About the Miramar Scarf
The Miramar Scarf is named for a road in the hills of Ventura where (unsurprisingly) you have stunning views of the ocean. The sparkling light on the waves is echoed in the seed stitch paneling on the scarf, while the lace sections remind me of the wake left behind the boats you can often see from up on the hill. The bobbles are, frankly, just for fun.
This scarf is a large scarf that grows from a provisional cast-on at the center and comes to a point at either end. The ends are adorned with tassels.
