Celebrate the festive season with a delicious project, reminiscent of the quintessential party dish – ambrosia salad. Combining the beautiful simplicity of eyelet lace with a sweet mosaic floral motif, the Ambrosia Wrap lets you play with colour and make the most out of a colourful set of fingering weight minis. Or create an equally stunning version with just three colours. Choose strongly contrasting colours for the floral mosaic, or perhaps a more subtle fade transition. Wrap yourself in delicious colour and texture.

Written and charted instructions included for the mosaic.
