The Age of Brass and Stem Kerchief, by Orange Flower, is a beautiful yet very simple triangular scarf/kerchief which can be knit with anything from a lace weight all the way up to a worsted weight yarn with adjustments made to needle size and yardage requirements. The DK weight version as written in the pattern makes a shawl approximately 53″ wide and 15″ tall at center back but can be easily upsized by adding repeats of the stockinette and eyelet sections. If you’re looking for something that doesn’t demand too much attention in the knitting but results in an elegant, wearable accessory this one is a great choice. And if you’d like a little added challenge, why not add beads (see first pic above)? I plan to cast this on (just as soon as  I finish the Asymmetric Linen Jacket) in SweetGeorgia’s CashSilk Lace in Slate or Handmaiden’s Swiss Mountain Cashmere and Silk in Cedar – decisions, decisions.
