Product description

Dotted with a symmetrical arrangement of eyelets, the Kenchiku Wrap’s lace motif builds off of each repeat to resemble chain link or rows of crowned hearts, depending on the piece’s orientation. Delicate in nature but donning the strength of its design without sacrificing tensile cohesion, Kenchiku is a true testament to the magic of lace knitting that takes full advantage of Vale’s ethereal fabric.

This lace stole is worked flat in two pieces, each from the cast-on edge to the center. The pieces are then joined using the Kitchener Stitch. The allover lace motif may be worked either from a chart or from written instructions.

Designer: Julie Hoover

Collection: Early Fall 2018
