This dreamy accessory, knit up in the lusciously soft CashLuxe Fine, combines cables and lace for a light, drapey fabric perfect for the transitional season between winter and spring. Emily Wood used two mirrored cables in Flitter to frame the trellis lace for an enchanting play between texture and shadow. This sweet little piece is just perfect.
