The traditional lace patterns of Bell Lace and Pyrenees Lace are combined with side borders worked in garter stitch and diamond lace motifs to create a large stole with an heirloom feel. Ceridwen is knitted in two halves to ensure the main lace pattern is symmetrical and the two pieces are joined using a garter stitch graft.
