This jar cover pattern cannot help but make you think of a beautiful castle surrounded by rolling green meadows and beautiful spring flowers. It must be ruled by a magnanimous Queen who adores her subjects and showers them with generosity. The pattern is beautiful by day and may be used as a vase for the loveliest of flowers. By night, add a tealight and watch as it makes the pattern shine and glow through the windows of the castle. The lace is simple and enjoyable as well as a knit that inspires you to let your imagination loose and daydream of this enchanting palace.
