Summer accessories...

Are you looking for something lighter on your needles?  Or perhaps a scarf or wrap for a special occasion?  

Check out some of the accessories our customers have been making with our lace weight and mohair yarns...

Jennifer has used the Manos Lace pattern, Sprite, and Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace to make a long cowl.

hanging loose

wrapped twice

Be simply sewing the short ends together (rather than adding fringes) she's made a big loop that can worn loose, wrapped twice around the neck or indeed halved with the end going through the loop (like a traditional scarf!)

Mary has also used a Manos Lace pattern (this time Karen) and Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace to make a short scarf with a lace pattern on the end...




We also have a wrap designed by local designer Dorothy Wood in the shop and we can offer the pattern too!  This takes 2 balls of Angel and is very light and soft it measures approx 200 x 50cm

optional beads add some interest and weight to the scarf



We also have our own Manos Lace shawl in the shop.
