“I’ve been enjoying experimenting with diamond-shaped lace motifs, and how naturally triangular shawls grow out of them. I like their harmony and balance. This particular variation on the theme was inspired by flowering bulbs — crocus, lily, amaryllis.” – Amy van de Laar
This airy triangular shawl will look beautiful over a dress or tank. Classic construction — top down from a garter tab with spine and edge increases — provides a structured canvas for a field of lacy blooms growing within diamond motifs. While the motifs look intricate, the techniques aren’t difficult and lace maneuvers occur on the right side only. The pattern is both written and charted. Choose a pretty shade of Plains for a dressy summer accessory. The sample is knit in Rainier; consider mellow Crema or cool Junco to offset bright and busy floral fabrics or complete a palette of calm neutrals.
(The sample is shown worn with Jared Flood’s Channel Cardigan knit in Shelter, Hayloft from the Winter 2014 Collection.)
