Janelle is pretty simple to knit, with a Stockinette stitch body and feather and fan border. The spiraled sections are shaped with increasingly larger yarnovers. The shape is a large circle with an opening in front, and the spiraled increases give it a swingy shape hanging down from your shoulders.
I've worked double-yarnovers in complicated lace patterns, and I really liked the effect of having different-sized holes in the lace. I went a little crazy with that idea, and used up to quadruple-yarnovers in this design. Working into double-, triple-, or quadruple-yarnovers isn't as complicated as it sounds; you just need to alternately work knits and purls into the yarnovers, and will end up with a big eyelet.
Until next time, Happy Knitting!
