Description from

This simple yet elegant wimple or smoke ring uses a variation of traditional Shetland Isles Feather and Fan or Old Shale patterning that Barbara Walker calls “Japanese Feathers.” The banded rows of predominantly knit stitches separating the lace patterned rows keep the edges from fanning as is the usual custom, while the lace sections lean first in one direction then the other creating beautiful waves.

Two yarn weights can be used or you can adjust the pattern repeats and needle size to accommodate your favorite yarn. Works well with hand-painted colors!

This pattern is now available in French. Enjoy!

There are also instructions given for a shawl with laceweight yarn.
