A while ago, I was craving something. Amongst all the stuff I was designing (Difficult and Brainy) i was reaching for something where the Ease and Flow would drive the knitting.
A small pattern repeat. A vertical direction.
And beads, I could not go without beads.
Viridian is a lacy treat! Envolve yourself in lace with just a touch of shimmer with beads on the edging.
I've made this pattern so you can enjoy it to the max. There's charts. And written instructions. There's tutorial links for beading and blocking your lace knits!!
The luxury of Manos Lace and its delicate touch will keep you warm in winter, but it can also dress up your spring garments when the seasons change.
