Frostfern is a top-down, no-sew, easy-to-wear design with a lot of ease (10” or more). It features traditional 4-row Shetland vine lace, sometimes referred to as fern lace. The back shoulders are cast on provisionally, then worked down to the underarms. The front shoulders are then picked up from the back to create a smooth, uninterrupted shoulder. The body is worked down from the underarms with some gentle flaring in the back lace section. The same flaring is echoed in the three-quarter length sleeves, which are picked up and knitted down in the round.
Takes 8 (9, 10, 11, 12, 13) skeins. Shown in Seal.
