The twisted stitches of the Clearwater Coverup enhance a simple lace pattern that is easy to memorize. Minimal shaping allows the knitter to focus on the beauty of the lace as it flows from the needles. This coverup is worked back and forth in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. Stitches are decreased dramatically at the shoulders to create a gathered effect.

NOTES

  • This coverup is worked back and forth in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. Stitches are decreased dramatically at the top to create a gathered effect at the shoulders. The front edging is worked separately and sewn around the entire front opening.
  • Two stitches are decreased in each pattern repeat on Row 1 of the lace patterns. Stitch counts return to their original numbers on Row 2 of the patterns.
