Taken from "New Lace Knitting" by Romi Hill: "A long and wide funnel neck teams up with a simple allover lace pattern in this elegant shell. The drape of the lacy material allows folds to drape beautifully around the neckline and frame the face. The body is worked in rounds from the bottom to the armholes, the upper back and front are worked separately from the base of the armholes to the shoulders, then the stitches are joined and the cowl is worked in the round. Firm blocking brings out the beauty of the lace stitches."
