KittelLike many Jewish men, my husband wears a kittel for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and the Passover seder. A kittel, if you haven't run across one before, is a kind of lacy labcoat. It's one of the few opportunities when I can make something out of lace for my husband and it will be worn proudly, not hidden in a drawer. Since it's a rather coarse lace (this isn't a baby gown, after all), I worked an adaptation of Dorothy Southard's Thorn edging in Bockens linen 30/2. I have not included a closeup of the lace because it's nothing extraordinary.
