Hello again! I’ve been quite busy knitting away, even though I haven’t had time to post here – I keep meaning to post more often, but life keeps getting in the way!! I do have some tutorial posts in the works, so stay tuned for those in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile – here is my latest pattern: the Moissanite Shawl!
This is knit in fingering weight yarn, and requires at least 1000 yards. It’s very customizable, though, so you may need much more than that if you add to the lace repeats.
Silicon Carbide, or Moissanite, is a rare natural mineral. It is almost as hard as diamonds, and has a fiery brilliance—so it is sometimes used as a diamond gemstone substitute. I found it a fitting name for this shawl made with several different diamond motifs.
The shawl is knit from the top down with a center spine diamond panel and gradually changing diamond lace on the sides. It is designed as more than a triangle to sit snug upon the shoulders. Size is customizable – I designed the lace patterns so that any number of repeats of the individual motifs can be knit.
Both charts AND written lace directions are included.
Sample shawl finished size:
Spine height 30 inches
Width 52 inches.
The pattern is $5.00 and you can buy now through Ravelry!
Enjoy – and Happy Knitting!
