A hexagon shape is transformed into a stunning delicate garment by two seams. Beads are added to the edging to add a bit of weight to the garment, enabling it to hang beautifully.

Lavinia is worked in the round from the centre out. Two seams transforms the hexagon shape into a batwing garment which fits a variety of sizes and shapes. If you would like a larger/longer or smaller/shorter garment, work fewer or more repeats of Charts A or B; yarn requirements will change accordingly.

Lavinia is the second design in the Lace Wear Volume 1 collection and is sold separately and as part of the collection.
