Full of delicious texture and detail, Nessa is a soft, light wrap, perfect in her simple lines and lace panels. Dressed up for a night out under the stars or curled up at home, Nessa is the most lovely backdrop for hand-dyed yarns. Starting at one corner with delicate lace, Nessa is a long rectangular wrap interspersed with striking geometic lace panels and slipped stitches travelling against a relaxing garter body for elegant detailing. A generous length, ideal for sweeping around your neck or flinging casually across your shoulders, Nessa is a design suited to both experienced knitters and those eager for a challenge. She's a fantastic first lace project. Both written and charted instructions are included.
