Nightingale Wing

Description

This sheer rectangle stole in two sizes (petite/tall) provides a lighter-than-air layer over a bare summer dress or top. Lace knitting on both sides of the fabric produces an arabesque of interlocking shapes with crisp lines, delicate eyelets, and pretty points along the hem edges. A wide, delicate edging along the length of each side border completes the stole, which is knit in one piece.

Shown here in Cormo Lace.
