The Slippery Vine Wrap is so named because the pattern incorporates both vine lace and a lovely textured slip stitch border.

The pattern features both written instructions and two simple charts and is a perfect beginner lace project.

Tucker (which as the name implies, is just the right size for tucking inside your coat or jacket) and Largo, a longer hug of simple elegance. You’ll also find instructions for increasing the width of the piece if you’d like a true shawl.

Techniques & skills: knit, purl, yarn over, slip stitch, basic increase and decrease.

What you’ll need:
300 (500) yards of worsted or light worsted weight yarn. Yarn suggestions: Malabrigo Rios or Twist, Juniper Moon Farms Sabine or Moonshine, Dream In Color Classy or similar. The original project was knit with Dream In Color “Night Watch”.
