A hexagon shape is transformed into a stunning delicate garment by two seams. Beads are added to the edging to add a bit of weight to the garment, enabling it to hang beautifully.

Lavinia is the second design in the Lace Wear Volume 1 collection and is sold separately and as part of the collection.

Exact tension is not essential but a difference in tension may affect the final size and amount of yarn used.

Lavinia is worked in the round from the centre out. Two seams transforms the hexagon shape into a batwing garment which fits a variety of sizes and shapes. If you would like a larger/longer or smaller/shorter garment, work fewer or more repeats of Charts A or B; yarn requirements will change accordingly.

Lotus Yarns calls Forest Dew a fingering weight but it’s a lace weight yarn. For yarn substitutions look for a yarn that has 365-400m per 50g (or 730-800m per 100g).
