Crisp outlines of cable stitches frame a back drop of
lace with HeartStrings' Lacy Maizy Wrap. This wrap is named
after the corn fiber yarn in which it is shown here.
The cables are carried out to each edge of the wrap,
preserving the overall flow of the curving lines. And normally Jackie
would not do fringe on a scarf, but this one called for it and she 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.
