Sometimes you just need an extra layer available even in the heat of summer, for example at the end of a day as the sun goes down, or in an overly air-conditioned restaurant. This is when a lacy shawl or wrap really comes into its own.
This new knitting pattern features tulip lace flowers topping tightly cabled stems and set onto a background of a slim Feather-and-Fan leaf pattern. The combination of these pattern elements gives a complex and eye-catching modern design.
The wrap is worked in Rowan Wool Cotton 4-ply which is a lovely, crisp yarn. The combination of the soft merino and the cotton fibres gives just the right degree of warmth for evening strolls.
The FFCT Wrap can be used as an every-day shawl but would also be superb used as an evening stole. I could also imagine this worked in a pure white 100% cotton yarn for a stylish wedding accessory.
The knitting pattern includes both charts and line-by-line instructions, and there are two sizes: the medium wrap is 168cm/66 ins long while the long one measures 182cm/72 ins. Both are 50cm/20 ins wide.
The FFCT Wrap pattern is available for instant download from my website and is also available on Craftsy, Etsy and Ravelry.
