This gossamer neckwarmer in two sizes (S/L) echoes the movement of natural grasses and vines in its tangled forms. The pleasantly irregular pattern of ever-changing angles is produced by introducing rest rows in one part of the motif and removing them in the other. Worked in the round with the right side facing at all times, the lace knitting is quite intuitive and easy to work with simple stitch maneuvers, making this a great project for any knitting level. The final fabric is delicate and at the same time, has a somewhat rustic and organic appearance, with interesting edges. It makes for a stunning accessory to gift or keep.
Substituting yarn and /or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
