Some days, only fine lace will do. On those days, when your soul feels tender and you’re quieter than usual, Veela is the shawl you’ll reach for.
She’ll do all the talking; actually, Veela will sing. Her graceful columns of soft chevrons, and frothy lace ends, will lift your chin a little higher, make your eyes shine brighter, and quite likely even cause a broad smile to burst from your lips. Veela lets you know you’re not just doing OK, you’re brilliant.
Knitted from side to side in fine lace-weight yarn, Veela is a soft, elegant, stole that’ll almost knit herself.
She’s irresistible to knit, and as the twists and turns in her lace are unveiled, you’ll be tempted to just knit another row, and another … and another.
Including a simple chart as well as written instructions, Veela is perfect for knitters who love to feel fabulous.
