HeartStrings Lace Puffs Smoke Ring Knitting Pattern A48
Lace Puffs Smoke Ring features lace knitting with lots of dimensional interest in an interplay of positive and negative space.
This smoke ring begins at the top edge with a wide band of softly textured puffs arising from a ground of laciness. The design then transitions into a wide ribbing where the double eyelets create negative space to mirror the positive space of the puffs. Finally, the knitting returns to puffs that widen at the bottom of the ring for a bit of flare.
An added bonus is that the scalloped edges at beginning and end of the ring form naturally due to the bias structure of the lace pattern creating the puffs.
Enjoy this versatile accessory pulled over the head as an elegant hood-type head covering with the lace puffs framing the face, or worn as a softly folded cowl-like neckline.
Choose a yarn such as merino wool or wool-blend with enough resilient elasticity and body to retain the interesting puckered, semi-welted fabric after a gentle blocking.
