Amaryllis Knit Hourglass Capelet
Inspired by the flower with a richly
romantic, yet tragic love story of a
determined yet timid nymph, who created
a flower that today symbolizes pride
and radiant beauty. This caplet is knit
in the round (seamlessly) in an easy to
memorize stitch pattern, but the beauty is
in the hypnotic, vertically oriented, wavy
lines of the lace. The scalloped edging is
uniquely constructed for added flair.
