Here’s what you do with your small, precious, coveted skeins of yarn... you make a very special neck jegging! One with a modified Shetland Lace border of course! The lace flairs out at the shoulders and snuggles up against the neck.
Keep in mind that if your precious yarn is delicate your are probably going to want to skip working with beads... I talk about this in the pattern!
The lace pattern is both charted and written out (as always!)
