Simple and very lovely, this wrap design is intended for the advanced beginner.
Crisp outlines of cable stitches frame a back-drop of lace. This wrap is named after the corn fiber yarn in which it is shown here.
Jackie writes: "The cables are carried out to each edge of the wrap, preserving the overall flow of the curving lines.
"Normally I would not do fringe on a scarf, but this one called for it – I sort of imagined that the long oval shapes that frame the lace eyelets are like ears of corn, and the fringe is like the corn silk of the tassel. "
