Columbia Scarf

Inspired by our former neighborhood in Cincinnati (Columbia Tusculum), this project takes the vibrant historic neighborhood and translates it into a stitch pattern. The lacy stitch pattern are modified pineapples which are everywhere in the neighborhood welcoming visitors. The bright colors match the wild pink and purple houses along our street. Pairing the fun color and lacy pattern, this is also a very versatile scarf that can be worn wrapped around your neck or shoulders all year long.
