Mimsy is knit from the top down starting at the centre back, it grows in width rapidly and the cascade of diamonds down the centre of the back keeps the knitting interesting. The lace icropped-027.jpgs simple but elegant and suitable for any advanced beginner knitter. All of the lace sections are fully charted together with comprehensive written instructions.

Knit in 4ply, fingering weight yarn on 4mm / US6 needles it uses approx 475 yards of yarn, or knit in laceweight on 3.5mm / US4 needles you need 440 yards of yarn.
