Unassuming and easy to dress up or down, Rafaëlle’s trapezoid shape is knit sideways from tip to tip. An 18-stitch lace panel with small nupps (achieved by a simple wrapped-stitch technique) and a picot edge are its only embellishments. Two types of pattern instructions are provided for your choosing: abridged with chart and row-by-row.
