In the Pink Shawl

RickMartin's picture

I started this and let it sit for a while because I had trouble with joining the three sections. But once they were joined everything went well. It was an easy knit - but the joining was perplexing to me.

I used 900 yards of Araucania Chaiten 100% silk yarn on a US #2 needle (yeah I knit loosely - the yarn suggests using a US 6 - so even lace at a 4 would probably be normal).

This is a free pattern in Ravelry if anyone's interested.

Very interesting pattern,

Very interesting pattern, Rick. I like the way the 3 different elements come together into an awesome design. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

That is simply beautiful.

All the lace knitters here are going to really get me into trouble! I used to think the only way to get such lovely designs was to crochet and so have stuck with socks, scarves and gloves. These pieces are so inspiring though.

Amazing, Rick! I'm lovin' the way the spiral in the colorway contrasts with the spiral of the yarn-overs. Great job!
