This asymmetrical lace wedge in two sizes (petite/tall) is worked from hem to tip in a wonderfully tangled pattern of vining leaf shapes with a different finish on each edge. While the motif is visually complex and the stitch count varies throughout, it is actually quite easy to work with rest rows mostly in purl. Knit in a shimmering silky yarn to highlight the forms within the pattern; use an airy matte yarn to enhance the play of transparency between background and foreground density.Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
