Naseem means breeze in Arabic. This stylish kerchief, with attached headband, can be worn in the breezy spring or fall, or as a shade from summer sun. It is a sweet, little, introduction to knitted lace which creates a pretty accessory in a short time. The lace is taken from a traditional Shetland pattern and used in a non-traditional way and is great for quick gifts or using up remnants from other fingering projects.
