Perfectly Simple. Rail Fence is made up of garter and lace. It is knit on the bias adding an extra measure of softness and drape with optional tassels at each end for a bit of whimsy! This is a great project for those interested in lace who have not yet taken the plunge and also great for those more experienced as it will make a nice relaxing project that you can take anywhere.

Pattern is fully charted with written instructions included and has been both tested and Tech Edited.
