Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic Lace

Pattern Description:

A simple stitch pattern resonates the trailing leaves of the Chinese Weeping Willow.

This beautiful tree was cultivated all throughout Asia and along the Trade route of the historical Silk Road.

Knit these up in luscious silk or cashmere to add opulance and to spice up your fall wardrobe.

These are knit flat with eyelets incorporated into the design for ribbon ties to close up the back. This also helps shape the warmer, as there is no shaping worked into the stitch pattern itself. If a much smaller/larger warmer is desired than an average adult size, this can easily be adjusted with the ribbon ties.

Pattern is charted but there are also written instructions for the lace chart.

Kalurah Hudson on

I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. (6, 8 and 10) They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!

My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
