Perfect for keeping your neck cosy and it won’t blow away like scarves have been known to do. A lovely lacy knit that makes a great gift and uses up leftovers. It is large and soft and looks best pinned with a decorative brooch. Shield pattern from an old German knitting book ‘Exercises in Knitting’ published in 1846 by Cornelia Mee. Knitwiki has also provided the pattern in the original format for Ravellers. Cornelia’s original book can be downloaded in full from Project Guttenberg.
