Two rich hues paired with delicate lace is as sweet a mix as plum and custard in a pie. Eyelets in staggered triangles balanced the slipped stitch brick section, promising a knit that is as fun for entry-level lace knitters as it is for those well-versed. One taste and we’re sure you’ll be back for more.
