Meet Ilo, a lightweight rectangular scarf with simple lace on garter stitch. The easy-to-memorise lace lets your mind wander to the rhythmic dance of the needles.

Ilo [ee-law] is Finnish for joy. This is your invitation to engage in the pure joy of meditative stitches and fine yarn.

You can easily adjust the size to your liking. The pattern includes instructions to modify both width and length.
