A simple stitch pattern resonates the trailing leaves of the Chinese Weeping Willow.

This beautiful tree was cultivated all throughout Asia and along the Trade route of the historical Silk Road.

Knit these up in luscious silk or cashmere to add opulance and to spice up your fall wardrobe.

These are knit flat with eyelets incorporated into the design for ribbon ties to close up the back. This also helps shape the warmer, as there is no shaping worked into the stitch pattern itself. If a much smaller/larger warmer is desired than an average adult size, this can easily be adjusted with the ribbon ties.

Pattern is charted but there are also written instructions for the lace chart.
