Inspired by the shape of the Linden Tree leaves, the femininity of this design is accented by the lightly puffed lace.
The lace is emphasised by a background of reverse stocking stitch. This keeps the lace from being too light and airy, making it ideal to wear on a cool Autumn day. A small moss stitch edging completes the classic look.
The pattern is provided with written instructions and a chart for the lace.
The cowl was designed to match the Linden Slouchy Hat.
