I’m particularly interested in geometric shapes that represent nature. This lace knit wrap design features a center panel of a repeating arbor lace stitch pattern surrounded by a Turkish faggoting stitch, and edged on both sides with a stylized leafy vine stitch pattern.

The inspiration for the design came as I was walking through a formal garden in Europe last year.

The linen/wool blend of Blacker Lyonesse provides excellent stitch definition for this pattern. I used 4 skeins in the color Citrine for the shawl as shown.

Note that both written and charted instructions are included.
