Let Inara be the blank slate on which you paint your own personality. Select two sets of gradient yarns for a rich ombre, or mix and and match from your stash for a roadmap of your favorite tones. Diagonal columns of alternating lace and garter stitch make a strong statement without being intimidating. Included is a schematic to color in to play with your color scheme. Worked end to end, this long wrap can easily be shortened with fewer repeats of the pattern sequence, instructions are given for 3 lengths, with both written and charted instructions included for the lace section.
