Lil & Love


Lil & Love is a large asymetrical triangular shawl, that features alternating bands of airy lace and striped garter stitch. The short rows give an impression of movement, and bring modernity to the design. Plus, it ends beautifully with a picot edge. Not a fan of two-tones designs? The play on stitches is enough on its own to be knitted in a single colour. Or, why not, playing on yarn using two different textures? Actually, the Ravelry page of the pattern shows some really nice projects, waiting to inspire you…

The lace is both written and charted.
