This pretty lace rectangle in three sizes (S/M/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. The wrong side lace knitting is quite intuitive and easy to work, making this a great project for advancing lace knitting skills. The final fabric is delicate and at the same time somewhat rustic and organic, with a lovely drape and pretty edges—perfect for summer evening wear.
