Inspired by blooming flowers, this wrap features a selection of botanical inspired lace patterns including an unusual original lace border using beautiful Estonian lace stitches.

I wanted to play with transitions between different stitch patterns by modifying one pattern to blend into the next to create an interesting knit. None of the stitch patterns has a long repeat so you will quickly get into a satisfying rhythm!

The wrap begins with a provisional cast on at the centre and is then worked outwards in two identical halves, starting with a simple lace pattern reminiscent of leaves, which then transitions smoothly into a gently undulating pattern of petals and finishes with a delicate edging of blooms and a beaded picot cast off.

All lace patterns have both charts and written instructions so you can work from whichever you prefer.
