I loved swatching this lace pattern, calm and organized it was easy to memorize and flowed almost effortlessly off of the needles. I wanted to pair it with a design that was equally uncomplicated. Umbrel starts with knitting the bottom edging with some short row shaping to turn the corners, then the stitches are picked up and the lace pattern is worked with a garter border continuing into the knitted off cast off. Soothingly straightforward.
Could you use Umbrel in your life?
