Inspired by a trip to France, La Mer is a beaded, Tunisian-crochet scarf. Alternating blocks of Tunisian lace and Tunisian simple stitch gives the scarf a modern geometric look while remaining infinitely feminine. Luxurious silk yarn feels cool and soft against bare skin, and beaded fringe is an elegant finishing touch.
