Free Pattern: Lumière Midi Scarf

Knit on the bias with an eyelet border, this mid-length scarf can be worn in multiple stylish ways. I was looking for something classy but a little rustic & funky for a small skein of handspun yarn. I was well into knitting this scarf when, thanks to Cecil B. Demented, I realized how the eyelet border reminded me of perforations on movie film.

Thanks. Looks like a versatile, flexible pattern. A nice thing to do with all my short lots.
