Lace Columns Wrap
Like the sun glinting through the columns of the Parthenon, illuminating the beauty Ancient Greeks found in balance and harmony, our Lace Columns Wrap embraces the elegance of graceful lines.
A pattern of yarn-over increases and simple decreases creates the graphic lines that define the Lace Columns Wrap. The resulting small windows highlight that it’s often the space between where the play of color and light turn to magic.
In our mohair-silk Tussock, light glistens off the silk and mingles with the soft mohair, while the unique depth of color comes from holding two strands of different, but related, shades. We’ve created twelve gorgeous Lace Columns Wrap Bundles so you can pick the one that shines for you!
