ERRATA: Please see post 3 in this thread for Errata relating to the print version of Uncia in The Book of Haps (corrections are being made to the PDF version): http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kate-davies-love/2466479/1-25#3

Originally published in The Book of Haps

Uncia is now available as a single-pattern Ravelry download! This version has corrected the errata listed above, and contains both the charted and written instructions.

Inspired by the geometry of Gothic and Romanesque rose windows, this design uses a twelfth-circle arc and a combination of lace and cables to create a hap that is both dramatic and easy to wear. The shape of the hap also gives it its name – uncia in Latin means ‘one-twelfth.’
