Vase of Grace
Very easy creative pattern for dressing up any vase in any shape that will leave people wondering how you did it. Designed by Nicky Epstein, it’s simply a stockinette tube knit with a beautiful yarn that you slip over a base. Then you stitch thread or yarn at every curve in the vase and gather the stitches so the tube hugs the vase. Great for gifts or decorations!
