Women of Mathematics Laceweight Shawl Collection - 3 Knitting Patterns
Added to cart
All slightly off-kilter in some way, these three shawls are designed to be versatile everyday pieces. They only require the most basic lace skills, and are well within the reach of any knitter who knows how to handle a yo or two. They were designed for laceweight... don't be afraid of the fineness of the yarn, you're still using pretty big needles. There are three shapes: a rectangle, a medium-deep symmetrical triangle, and a shallow but wide bias triangle. Each adapts to whatever quantity of yarn you have.
Noether is a big old rectangle, with a fun asymmetric stripe. Busbridge is a regular triangle that turns the patterning upside down: it's lacy at the top, plain at the bottom. And Souvaine is a slightly asymmetric triangle, with an oh-so-simple but very impactful lace stripe. Noether and Souvaine could easily be worked in heavier yarns, Busbridge really requires a laceweight for best effect with the patterning.
