Zambra, a perfect accessory for walks on the beach during long summer evenings, is presented in two shapes: a rectangular stole and a crescent wrap. The stole is worked seamlessly from a temporary cast on to both ends, starting with openwork pattern and ending with wide textured lace edgings. The crescent is worked from the top down, beginning with a set of simple stockinette short rows and ending with the deep lace border. Although the lace borders may seem complicated, they use only basic stitches throughout that makes them very easy to knit.
