Lona, the solitary one, begins with a few stitches and gradually increases in width and length. It has a meshy look accentuated by veins and holes along the way. Lona is roughly triangular in shape and is light, airy, and modern.

When I finished crocheting, I had 10g of yarn remaining. One can easily use up remainders by customizing the pattern.

The pattern pdf is 4 pages with 6 photos of the piece. It includes a table to help you keep track of stitch counts.

The following wonderful people tested Lona--Alivaz, Mad4Tahoe, Sskcraftshop, LeasaGraham, S2five. Their projects are all lovely.
