Sparkle Nation Scarf Weaving Pattern Download
Universe is a kind of magical yarn that brings the best of the plant world together with shiny metallics into a kind of “techno-wonderland” yarn. Amy used openwork patterning in this scarf to subdue what is a very glittery yarn and to soften the overall look of the shawl.
