There is nothing more elegant than lace in the winter, but the frigid cold of New England often forces me to reach for bulky knits instead. This wrap was designed to have the refinement of a lace shawl with the same warmth of your favorite cozy scarf. Everwood is worked all in one piece and features a repeating lace pattern inspired by the traditional Nordic snowflakes. The worsted weight version of this wrap is an exceptionally quick lace project that will keep you warm in even the coldest of winters. For those who are lucky enough to have warmer winters, the fingering weight version of this wrap is for you. Either way, the end result is a versatile piece can be worn draped over your shoulders for a classic winter wedding, or wrapped around your neck with your favorite winter jacket for a smart, sophisticated look.
