#MP-CALSADA | Calsada Scarf

Says Matthews: "Garter stitch rectangles alternate with lace in this feminine shoulder scarf, giving it the look of paving stones, or calsada as they are known in Portuguese. The edging combines with garter stitch short rows to create a graceful arc and give the scarf depth at the back of the neck.

"Calsada comes in one size, and the pattern includes both written and charted instructions. For the adventurous intermediate knitter." You work the edging first, then go back and pick up along it to work the 'body' of the scarf. This gifted designer's previous pattern, Amalia, was a huge hit; this design, slightly easier, can only add to her glowing reputation.
