Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Angi by Francoise Danoy

My favourite element of the design is how easy the stitch pattern for the body can be to memorize. That makes it convenient to take as an “on-the-go” project. By the end, though, there’s a nice change of pace with the lace border.

The name for Angi (from the charming Francoise Danoy) comes from the Maori word for “air”, representing the airy lace stitches featured. Worked up in CashSilk Lace, the results are light as a feather with a drape that flows like water. Knitters of every level will delight in this elegant, yet playful shawl. (PS – You can also find Angi as a complete kit, removing all guesswork).
