This featherlight crescent in two sizes (petite/tall), begins with a deep lace hem and has short rows through the shoulder area that shape it into a graceful curve. Snowflake and fir tree motifs sweep across its outer circumference while a tumble of garter stitch texture ensures a lovely warmth around the throat and shoulders. Despite its visual complexity, the lace is quite simple and entertaining to work, translating well in tonal variegated yarns. The final result is a stunning composition that offers a warm and versatile layer for all seasons.
