It was the obvious name for the pattern, as the base stitch for this shawl is the translation of the word apple into knitting by designer Naomi Parkhurst.
I couldn’t resist de detail and originality of it, so I chose a classic triangular shape to enhance the freshness of the lace, and a bright colour of hand dyed merino yarn (Dyed by Alfinete) to send the gloominess away.
