Amiens is inspired by the graceful shapes of medieval architecture. The complexity of lace is combined with the texture of cables in an elegant accessory, providing a cozy additional layer for cold winter outing as well as practical cover up for warmer days (CHART ONLY).

This wrap is knitted in one piece starting at the bottom edge of the lace followed by few decreases and cables, which give it its overall shape. The length can be easily customized by working a different number of the lace pattern repeats. All reverse rows are simply purled. Amiens features a ten-button closure that can be worn either centered at the front or to one side toward the wearer’s shoulder.
