Pattern Description:

This lovely lacy wrap is the perfect addition to a beautiful bridal gown but would be just as suitable for a special wedding guest or bridesmaid. Gorgeous in traditional tones of white, ivory or pearl and equally stunning in lilac, duck-egg blue and pale dusky pink...or how about one for the theatre (or to match bridesmaid dresses) in deep red, emerald or purple?....Whichever you choose I am confident that this stylish pattern will look wonderful.

Initially designed for my youngest son's bride to be, my inspiration was to produce an heirloom piece that reflects her delicate beauty...and of course the loveliness of all brides on their wedding day.......


Method:
The Wrap is worked by making a provisional cast on and then working one of the deep border edges. Once you have cast off this first edge, the provisional cast on stitches are picked up and the body of the wrap; together with the other deep border edge, is worked as one piece. Thus no seaming or demarcation lines.
It is worked flat, turning after every row.


Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for this garment but a nice even tension will produce the best results.
Blocking the garment is absolutely essential and will bring out the true beauty of this pattern.
