The Crystal Palace scarf was inspired by the characteristic glass and cast iron facade of the building designed for the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London, with the same name. Crystal Palace is written for the size as pictured. However, the width and length are easily adjusted for further customization, including those following the usage of weights of yarn other than fingering-weight.
