“Sharbella” means “beautiful scarf” in Italian, and that’s exactly what this is! Elegant and pretty, with gentle shaping and lace trim along one side. The sport-weight yarn makes this a good lace project for knitters who have never tried knitting lace before, and the video tutorial walks you through the tricky parts and gives guidance for making this stress-free lace knitting.
