Open Air Wrap is a new pattern out this month from Purl Soho. We love the simple sophisticated look of this summer scarf.  It employs Purse Stitch to create a net-like mesh fabric which makes it light and wearable on warm days and lends itself to experimentation with unique yarns.  For a slightly heavier look, we have Habu Wrapped Silk (N-84) in stock but we could also see this knit with Habu Wrapped Merino or Tsumugi Silk stranded with Silk Stainless Steel. We currently have lots of colour options available in these yarns.  Now that I think of it, this scarf would also be stunning in Quince Sparrow with its crisp texture and beautiful sheen!  In the mood for a straightforward but highly effective knit? This one has your name on it.
