LOVELY IN LACE WRAP
The Lovely in Lace Wrap was originally designed as the Audrey Hepburn Advent MKAL Shawl for Tippy Tree Yarns, released in December 2020.
ABOUT THE PATTERN
The Lovely in Lace Wrap is a long, rectangular shape comprised of four colors and three simplistic lace stitch motifs that are repeated throughout the wrap. It is easy to modify the length of each section, as well as the order of the colors, and even the number of colors that you use.
This wrap is the classic, elegant style that Audrey Hepburn would’ve loved to wrap around her shoulders for a night out. The knit is simplistic in technique but engaging and fun to knit – and you won’t get bored!
This pattern is worked from one end to the other. Learn more about the design inspiration, knitting experience, and wearing experience here.
The pattern includes one PDF file with both the written and the charted instructions, but the instructions are kept separate for easy printing.

Lovely in Lace Wrap includes simplistic increases and decreases for working lace. This includes K2tog, KFB, YO, SSK, and SKP. This is a great pattern for an adventurous beginner that is wanting to try lace knitting for the first time. The rows are relatively short, and the pattern includes a lot of repeats (so there’s more time for practicing and not as many new techniques to learn.
Still trying to decide if you’re up for the lace? This blog post goes into depth on exactly what techniques are included in the wrap and how to decide if you’re going to enjoy knitting the lace or not.
If you’ve never worked lace before but are familiar with increasing or decreasing stitches (i.e. K2tog, KFB, and YO), you already know how to work lace, so don’t let that term scare you. Plus, I like to say that all of knitting, regardless of the stitches, is the same: you just follow one instruction at a time, and (almost) everything is just a version of a knit or a purl.
All of my patterns include clear, step-by-step instructions and linked video technique tutorials that walk you through the pattern with confidence. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.
