$8 CAD

Bands of frothy Silk Mist lace alternate with Tough Love Sock garter stitch ridges in this elegant cowl. The bands of lace are first worked in stockinette stitch, then reverse stockinette, creating a reversible fabric. The increases and decreases in the lace push and pull the garter ridges around to create undulating lines like ripples in the sand.
