“A thing of beauty is a joy forever”
John Keats, Endymion, 1818.

A delicate and fluid design, the Redwords scarf is inspired by the poetry of John Keats. Beautiful words interwoven in fine openwork pave the way to freedom and romance; they talk about the soothing rhythm of walks and thoughts. The design tries to capture all these feelings in an elegant and organic lace scarf design. It is knitted flat and incorporates a revisited lace stitch pattern from late Nineteenth Century and garter stitch. Pattern recommended for an intermediate lace knitter.
