Introducing my latest pattern: Sunburst!
Designer: Rachel Henry (that’s me!)
Available: booklet #9222 “Meadow Melody” (from Classic Elite Yarns)
Yarn: CEY Soft Linen in two colors; 5 balls of the main color (2235 “Winter Pear”) and 2 balls of the contrast color (2204 “Titian Blue”)
This triangular shawl is worked from the bottom edge up, which means the rows get shorter and faster as you go. Three distinct tiers of lace pattern help alleviate boredom, and highlight the change in colors. Transition points are softened with alternating rows of garter stitch. Lace knitters will be familiar with basic increases and decreases; this pattern also uses twisted stitches, double yarn-overs, k3tog, and sssk .
The shawl is large and drapey — it can be worn many ways! Check out this beautiful photos from the CEY photo shoot:
