During my last visit to Whakatane I knit up this shawl (it's a quick knit for a lace project), and did a photoshoot by the river with Dad...
|One of Dad's many amazing bird photos! This one's a white-faced heron.|
The lace patterns in Silverwing are simple and easily memorised, making it a suitable project for a beginner lace knitter, or an experienced lace knitter looking for a low-attention project for tv knitting.
|I like the way the long tail of the shawl curls around itself.|
- an all-over lace pattern inspired by wing feathers
- an asymmetrical triangular shape, knit from the narrow point to the opposite edge
- a stretchy k2tog-tbl lace bind off
- the lace patterns are intuitive and easy to memorise
- a one-skein project, easily customisable to suit your available yardage
- perfect for gradient-dyed yarn, as well as solids and semi-solids. The lace is also simple enough for speckled or lightly variegated yarn
- one size, easily shrunk or enlarged by changing the number of repeats
- pattern includes full written instructions and hybrid charted + written instructions
You can see all the details and download the Silverwing pattern via Ravelry, Loveknitting, or Etsy. Dad's website (with a very pretty photo gallery) is here: Jos's Photography & Framing.
|In full sail! ;)|
