Fir Cone Lace Shell

This stitch pattern was perfect for a simple shell, and I couldn’t wait to work it up in a yarn that shows great stitch definition. The texture is just beautiful and the pattern creates a natural wave to the bottom edge. Show off this shell all by itself or pair it with its matching cardigan (Pattern 107).

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.

The lace pattern is presented in charted format only.
