4. Winter Soiree Sweater
This cozy relaxed-fit sweater has plenty of drape and lots of playful pizzazz. It is worked side to side in one piece and features a fringe lace panel, textured stripes, and wide sleeves with an optional tie at the wrist. Its open stitch pattern across the top adds a touch of flirtation for a date night.
5. Cocktails Cowl
Easy lace stitches are the name of the game in this beautiful cowl. Double crochet fans paired with chains create a fun texture and an interesting lace pattern. Worked in smooth yarn, those lace stitches really pop! This textured cowl pairs perfectly with a touch of red lipstick.
6. Pineapple Bash Poncho
This light-as-air poncho uses a vintage pineapple crochet lace design to make 2 rectangular panels. The panels are then edged in 2 additional vintage techniques: filet crochet and picot shell stitch. The resulting piece is magically modern and easy to wear for a fun night with your sweetheart.
7. Berry Festive Sweater
Bring the party to the front or the back with this cowl-adorned dolman-sleeve sweater. The lacy openwork drapes beautifully atop the herringbone and V-stitch panels. Vertical ribbing at the waist is both forgiving and flattering.
