Combining a modern linear “striping” sequence with a traditional Shetland lace edging, the Patrice Wrap is a gossamer rectangular stole, perfect for dressing up a party frock for a summer wedding or any festive occasion.
Started with a provisional cast on, the wrap is knit using a simple elongated garter stitch pattern, then bound off by working the Cat’s Paw edging. Finally, the cast on stitches are bound off in the same way. The reversible and easily memorized garter stitch lace patterns are written out, as well as charted. Instructions include an option to add beads to the edging for a bit of extra sparkle.
