Mountain Laurel


Mountain Laurel is an asymmetrical scarf/shawl featuring easy eyelet mesh details. The interesting color affect is created by double-stranding a full skein of fingering-weight (Manos del Uruguay Fino) with a set of fingering-weight mini skeins (Manos del Uruguay Fino Mini Set). Mountain Laurel is relaxing knitting that’s still interesting, with color changes that keep you excited to see what’s next!
