Product description

Inspired by patterns of sunlight through antique leaded windows, a branching geometric tracery radiates from a pinhole cast-on. The central square of this lace stole is worked circularly, with two sides extended working flat to form a large rectangle. A garter stitch edge finishes the perimeter. Knit in laceweight Vale, Leadlight makes a weightless and intricately beautiful accessory to elevate simple outfits or crown a formal dress.
