One Sweet Shawl

The first pattern I designed was inspired by a Victorian era zig zag lace edging that I discovered in Field Guide to Knitting by Jackie Pawlowski. It is knit vertically, beginning with eleven stitches but increases to 35 stitches at its widest point. I love its width and the deep eyelet points it creates. The Fir Cone lace pattern is worked after picking up stitches along the horizontal edge of the Victorian edging.

The combination of a traditional British lace pattern with a wide Victorian edging appears delicate, but actually provides substantial warmth without being bulky. Fir Cone and Lace Shawl is knit in Knit Picks Galileo, a blend of merino wool and bamboo. The yarn has a smooth feel and a beautiful sheen, highlighting stitch details.
