New Pattern: Leafy Branches Wrap

It is only a January, but already the winter seems to be very long. And cold.
And... I am thinking of warm, cozy things to knit and wear.
Wrap... how about a wrap? Or a wide scarf? Or a prayer shawl?
Made with a soft acrylic yarn for an additional warmth?
With a nice lacy pattern that reminds me and you of Spring?
Well, here is what came to my mind:

Leafy Branches Wrap

Leafy Branches is a wrap that is knitted for cold winter day when you  need something really warm  and heavy on your shoulders. 
The simple rectangular shape, medium weight acrylic yarn and a 12-row pattern repeat makes this wrap a good first lace project for beginners.
The Leafy Branches is one of the traditional patterns in Estonian lace knitting.
