This wide lace wrap was inspired by a hank of yarn that brought to mind stratified rocks and small rockpools in between like on the little beach, “the Creek”, below our house at Coolmore in Donegal. My doodling came up with the lace patterns here which lend themselves to a long draping stole.

This piece is made in two sections and grafted together to create a symetrical wrap where the ripples fall away from the centre.

To ensure you have a symetrical wrap, divide your yarn into two equal parts before you start.

I used Sparkleduck 70/30 Silk Seacell laceweight.
