The Story
Diana Rigg on PBS’s Mystery! introduces Gladys Mitchell’s 1920’s criminologist and amateur sleuth, Mrs. Adela Bradley, this way: “Over the course of some sixty-six mysteries, Adela Bradley married and divorced three husbands, was made a Dame of the British Empire, and a consultant to the British Home Office. She also developed prodigious abilities at pub darts, snooker, billiards, and knife throwing. One thing she cannot do is knit.”

So, for Adela -- mondaine, cosmopolitan and woman of impeccable fashion sense -- a unique and beautiful lace scarf to match her individuality!

A captivating scalloped-edge lace scarf whose mirrored pattern extends from the centre out. The thematic eyelet end edgings are knit on. Stitch patterns both charted and written out.
