After months of test knitting, re-knitting, and more test knitting, we launched my Lilac Leaves shawl pattern at TNNA last weekend. It’s a lovely little top-down semi-circular shawl that is really easy to knit and modify. Knit with just one skein of CashSilk Lace, it features a quick stockinette body section and then finishes with a border of lace in the Lilac Leaves pattern.
Our test knitters made up their samples in laceweights including CashSilk Lace and Merino Silk Lace as well as fingering/sock weight yarns. The pattern worked well for the different yarn weights… they just resulted in different looks and feels… I need to take a photo of Evelien’s massive version in Merino Silk Lace. It’s simply gorgeous and huge and all Lettuce Wrap-y green.
In this case, Brigid reduced the number of lace repeats and used a heavy fingering weight yarn (our Silk Crush) to make a shawlette that’s perfect as a neck scarf.
