Add a little lace flare to almost any outfit. Wear this lace choker over a high neck shirt or a lower more dramatic neckline. This piece is knit lengthwise and is essentially two lace edgings facing in opposite directions with a center column of enlarged eyelets between them. Included are both the written out lace instructions and the charted design in scalable, easy to read format.
The upper lace is my variation of an 1890's rosebud pattern. The bottom edging calls to mind the rose's thorns and the pattern looks of little stems and leaves. Two delicate button loops worked in the bind-off row and ribbon woven through the center eyelets secure the piece in the back.
