With just a little taste of lace knitting, our Lace Margins Wrap was designed for knitters who might like to dip in and give these easy techniques a try.

The simple “cat’s paw” motif only runs along the outer edges of the wrap, giving you a swath of easy-peasy stockinette in the middle. This makes the few lace stitches simple to learn (and memorize) and easy to track… An introduction to lacework that sets you up for success!

And that field of stockinette is also a perfect opportunity to appreciate the exquisite character of Spindle, the variation of color and texture of this Irish Donegal beauty! Eighty percent merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% mulberry silk, this delicate single ply balances elegance with  down-to-earth appeal.

Stunning in deep Turquoise Dusk, this light and supple wrap will be striking in any of Spindle’s seventeen colors. Bring a little sun to your day with bright Golden Meadow, or tuck into the gentle warmth of Gray Ember. Whichever you cast on with, you’ll enjoy knitting with a truly special yarn and maybe learning something new, while you’re at it!
