Have you ever had a pizzelle? It's a very thin crisp highly detailed italian cookie made with a hot iron.
Now look at that up there and tell me you don't see a resemblance to this down here.
Mmmm, those flutey edges and the lacyness are making me hungry. I never would have seen it at all if Kevin hadn't commented that it looked like the aforementioned Italian cookie. Sometimes it just takes a fresh eye to make you see something in a totally different way.
If you want to make one of your own, all you need is Stitchionary 4 and use the edging called "wide scallop." Six repeats and a button placed so that it drapes the way you like is all you need if you use a size I hook and worsted weight yarn.
