Worked from the top down the shaping is created with randomly placed yarn overs which get gradually further apart. In the final section more yarn overs with corresponding decreases are worked to create a more open pattern. The bottom edge is finished with a delicate but simple crochet loop bind-off . If you’ve never crocheted before just a little practice making a chain will equip you with all the skills necessary.
The pattern of yarn overs appears random but, for ease of knitting, is a repeating pattern. Directions are written out and charted — unusually I preferred to work from the written directions for this one.
