Modern Daily Knitting Field Guide No. 15: Open is the perfect way to open yourself up to the possibilities of lace!

This stole is a billowy, light, and enveloping confection that melds two different yarns (in three different colors). Jeanette chose a lace pattern that looks random (even though it isn’t), then added in the extra effect of changing the way the yarns are combined, resulting in exciting oscillations of color, texture, and motif.
