Wimples are such versatile garments! Wear them around the neck as a scarf or cowl, or pull them up as a hood to keep the ears and head warm. These lacy wimples add beauty to functionality.
Each wimple is worked in the round from the bottom edge to the top, with two strands of laceweight yarn held together. Available all in one pattern or individually, whichever you prefer. All are recommended for Intermediate lace knitters. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted.
