Flossie

The generous dimensions of my all-season Flossie Stole serve the wearer well – as a neck wrap fending winter winds or around the shoulders for gentler breezes. Answering my search for a simple yet interesting lace, is this 11 stitch by 20 row repeat of zigzag vine (actually 10 rows x 2, duplicated in the opposite direction). Briefly trimmed with garter stitch, you'll find this an enjoyable project to make, suitable for most knitters.
