The “Fancy Braids” neck-warmer features Tiziana’s Lacy Vikkel, an innovative way I developed to work lacy vikkel braids and fancy horizontal stitches.
This pattern gives directions to make a basic and a larger/elongated version of the neck-warmer or a scarf.

It’s a small item, perfect for practicing this new technique without feeling overwhelmed. ;-))

Fancy Braids is the first of three patterns that feature this fun, new technique; it can be bought individually and will also be available with a promotion as a collection called “Lacy Caterpillars”.
The collection does include this neck-warmer, Reginetta shawl and Lacy Jewels cowl.

If you purchase this pattern, and will later buy the other two patterns which are part of the collection, the price of Fancy Braids will be deducted from the cost of the collection.

On download page you’ll find three PDF:

  • Fancy_Braids does contain the directions to knit the neck-warmer.
  • Tutorial_Lacy_Vikkel does contain a photo tutorial with step by step pictures for Tiziana’s Lacy Vikkels.
  • Samples_Fancy_Braids does contain pictures and specifics of the test samples. My biggest thanks to the test knitters, their projects are wonderful!

NOTE : the “Samples_Fancy_Braids.pdf” does NOT contain directions, only pictures of the test samples, yarn amount, measurements and notes. There is NO need to print it to knit this pattern.
