Country French

Country French is a delightful lace stole with a pretty lattice stitch pattern, lovely border panels, and bobbles that really pop!

Knitting begins with a provisional cast-on and is worked flat from one end to the other. Lace borders are added afterwards, and are worked across, from one side to the other.

Beautiful to wear, fun to knit, and a project that you can take anywhere.
