New pattern alert!
This project was inspired by something a young Laura Ingalls Wilder might sport in anticipation of spring. (Cue Little House on the Prairie theme)
Peaks and valleys (or knots and eyelets) make up this pretty and practical shawlette using only 350 yards of fingering weight yarn. Because this project is worked side to side, it is a great way to jump into lace knitting without the casting on or binding off of hundreds of stitches.
The middle shawl here is knit from Schaefer Yarns Heather (55% Merino wool Superwash, 35% cultivated silk, 15% Nylon; 400 yards [365 m] / 4oz [113 g]), 1 skein.
The shawl pictured here and in the first pic is knit from Claudia’s Hand Painted Yarns, Fingering Weight (100% Merino; 175 yards [160 m] / 1.75oz [50 g]), 2 skeins. Color: Desert Dusk.
Closing credits: Many thanks to my lovely models Brooke and Vivian!
