Sweet and Simple
This is the fourth in a series of posts recommending patterns for variegated lace yarn. We are saying goodbye to Findley Dappled in Have Shawl Will Travel. Join us!
For knitting, there is perhaps no lace pattern as iconic as the Feather and Fan, also called Old Shale. Because of the way it zigs and zags, this pattern is called the Missoni Inspired Scarf. The gentle ripple design looks lovely no matter what yarn it is worked in, and this adjustable scarf pattern could just as easily be turned into a large, rectangular stole.
For crocheters, I just love the juxtaposition of solid and mesh stripes on the Allium Shawl. The other great thing about this shawl is that it is worked from the top down, giving you the change to customize the size. Isn't it great that making things ourselves means we get to make them just right for our bodies and our lives?
