Ilga Leja's Waves of Lace is a cool, lacey shell, knit in a linen silk yarn, and the perfect beach wear, don it over a bikini, tank top or T-shirt. The frothy, wave like stitch pattern echoes the gently rolling waves along the shore. The matching scarf can be worn on its own or as part of the ensemble. Knit in a satisfying, easy-to-memorize openwork pattern, the shell is self finishing.
After knitting and blocking there is nothing more to do but to sew the side seams. And you're ready for the beach! Modeled in Hand Maiden's Flaxen.
