Modern Lace is a delicate wrap made in contemporary and bold lace patterns. Polka dots and diagonal lines checker across this easy-to-wear accessory – that is both a beautiful accessory and an incredibly interesting knit. Made in airy fingering weight yarn, it’s light but still cozy. Wear it over your shoulders as a wrap or around your neck as a scarf. Either way, you will stun!
This wrap is made in one piece along the short edge. Three different lace patterns are alternated to create a checkerboard effect across the fabric.
