SKY LINES

Lines in the sky tell a story of a connection between people and nature. When we stop for a moment to look upwards in the city, we often see the sky through an array of the plane trails and intersections of power lines. Such straight manufactured lines don’t overpower or dilute the beauty of the sky, but complement it, making soft masses of clouds look even more tender and light.

The scarf is knit from the central set-up square outwards. Two identical sides can be worked one by one or from two different balls of yarn at the same time. Sections of dropped stitches, simple lace, stockinette, and small slipped stitch cables arranged in a chevron pattern are separated and highlighted by the lines of wraps in contrasting color. The wraps can also be worked in an array of colors to use up scrap yarns.
