“Tea leaf lace…how very Churchmouse!”

Encouraging for new lace knitters and relaxing for seasoned lace knitters, this stitch pattern is fairly simple and the clues in the knitting quite easy to read. A simple rectangle can be styled so many ways. Wear the shawl around your shoulders or as a lavish scarf; wear the scarf long, Chelsea-knotted, or wrapped around for cowl coziness!

Make a light-as-air scarf in a lace-weight yarn like Rowan Kidsilk Haze, or a cozy wrap in drapey fingering-weight Isager Alpaca Merino 2…or switch up the fibers for a warm scarf and an airy wrap! Why not make one of each?
