Never Wimpy Wimple
Pattern description from Lace Style: “Whether you wear it up over your head or down around your neck, a wimple - especially one that’s edged in lace - makes a delicate frame for your face. In this version, Priscilla Gibson-Roberts worked a decorative edging pattern back and forth in rows and joined it into a ring for the lower border. She then picked up stitches around the straight edge of the border and worked circularly to the top in stockinette stitch, finishing off with a simple eyelet pattern bordered by a few garter ridges.”
