Piiri is the result of a desire to play with the Integrated Lace Technique, a method that makes use of two different yarns to create a seamless double layer fabric. It is a fascinating technique that enables the combination of color and lace without raising the complexity of the stitch pattern.

The Rohrspatz & Wollmeise yarns are perfect for this type of project, as their vibrant colors and tight twist provide contrast and great stitch definition to the end result.

Instructions are given in written abbreviated form and charts.
