Do you feel lucky? The name of this came from the horseshoe lace design and their folklore of bringing luck. I know growing up on a farm, we always had a horseshoe over all the exits. All that pass, may they have luck.

This design has a fun shaping elements. All the shaping is smartly made right within the lace design so it’s seamless in it’s movement and shaping.

May you have lots of luck in your knitting adventures
