This pretty lace wrap is elevated to another level of glam with the addition of a single strand of super-sparkly thread.

Palila has tiny sequins on a metalised thread, so it’s lighter than lace and yet adds a sparkle without the weight of other yarns. The Kid Silk on it’s own gives a lovely halo and together with some sparkle should make you feel like the Belle of the Ball. Go for a dramatic contrast such as French Navy and Silver (shown in the magazine) or how about a delicate look of Ivory and Gold for a wedding?

I love a dramatic wrap to go with my little black (or grey) dress, something of a statement piece to draw the eye upward and add a bit of glam to a simple outfit. It looks great with jeans too, I wore it on the school run and everyone loved it :-)

Knitted on large needles and with only a small amount of yarn. the pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
