Cloisters recalls the architecture of the buildings that housed monastic communities of women. Delicate traceries of lace recall
the ornate grills that separated the cloister from the public in visiting parlours, while peaked arches mimic graceful spires and alcoves.

This wrap is worked from one short edge to the other with no grafting and joining in the middle. The border patterns are designed to be similar enough to match, but not exactly the same.
