Evensong is a beautifully versatile and elegant piece inspired by the Gatsby era and the swinging 20’s. It’s soft lacy centre drapes wonderfully, creating a soft fabric to wear against the skin and the gorgeous shaped borders add just the right amount of weight to allow the garment to hang perfectly. Wear as a long stylish scarf, a narrow wrap or even as a belt. Example made in a lovely golden hue with variegated autumnal shades but would look gorgeous in tones of cream and ivory for a bride. Shades of purples and greens would be pretty too, and the perfect excuse to try out a coveted hand dyed yarn.
Materials Example made using: 50g x 2 of Senses Lace by Stylecraft in Ochre (250m/273yds per 50g) 50g x 2 of Drops Delight in Shade 13 (17.5m/191yds per 50g)
Method Constructed seamlessly beginning with a crocheted provisional cast on. First half of the lace centre piece is worked, followed by the first border edge. This is cast off, the live stitches from the cast on are placed onto the needles and the second half is worked in exactly the same way. This method provides a seamless garment with no demarcation line. The piece is worked from side to side in rows, turning after every row.
