A Field of Violets

Pattern Launch- Take 20% off with code Violets, valid through 9/28/20

This triangle shaped shawl features stylized violet flowers in lace alternating with bands of stockinette. Knit with 2 balls of gradient dyed yarn, the colorwork is achieved with strategic use of the opposite ends of the skeins.

The violet lace pattern is intuitive and easy to track, making this piece an ideal first lace project. More seasoned knitters will appreciate the easy rhythm of lacework and stockinette. I found the colorwork to be a great motivator for “one more row”.

Knit at a fairly tight gauge with a luxury blend of merino and cashmere, your shawl will keep you warm and cozy when violets are but a sweet memory, sleeping under the snow.
