Elegant and effortless… Lomond is a light lace rectangular stole that’s ideal to wear on spring and summer days or worn draped over eveningwear.

Worked from end to end, Lomond is created by knitting alternating lace and stocking stitch sections, and features i-cord edges to complement the natural curl that stocking stitch creates.
