FO: Shetland Triangle

Pattern: Shetland Triangle Shawl from Wrap Style

Yarn: Handmaiden Silk Maiden in Peridot, 1.2 skeins

Needles: US 7

Notes: This pattern was such a joy to make.  I had no issues with the lace pattern, and the yarn was just beautiful!  I knit 9 repeats of the main chart, 1 more than the pattern called for.  I could have knit more, but I wanted a smaller shawl.  I left off the last rows of the edging.  I would absolutely make this pattern again – it was so quick and easy to keep track of that it hardly seems like lace!  I would recommend this project to new-ish lace knitters – other than the edging it really is the same repeat every RS row.  I think this will be lovely this summer – now all I need is a summery white dress to go along with it!

    I hope you don’t mind me asking, but.. is it your own?? Because if it is, I think you’re really lucky to have such beautiful red hair. 🙂
    (My blonde hair comes out of a bottle, if it helps. Heh.)

  5. That looks lovely on you. I so want to knit something lace, I just need to find the right pattern and swatch my Lana Borgosesia Cashwool!

  6. Wow…you have really inspired me. I have never knit a shawl or lace before, but this one is so beautiful and you say it’s easy. I can hear my needles clicking now….

  7. Being a Shetlander myself, I’m very impressed with your shawl – beautiful! Now thinking I’ll knit the same shawls for my bridesmaids to wear at our winter wedding!
