Gives the impression of lace without the work.
This gossamer wrap gives the impression of lace without the work of making increases, decreases, and yarn overs. You can achieve this effect by using a simple garter stitch and alternating three yarns, each with a beautiful and unique texture. The self fringe is created leaving a tail of yarn as you change yarns every other row.
