Indie Design GAL: Shawls Part 1

This is part of my on-going Indie Designer Gift-A-Long 2016 series, where from November 23rd – December 31st I highlight some patterns from my fellow designers also participating in the event! Each post will highlight at minimum 5 different designers and their patterns.

Don’t forget to join in the fun, we’re all over here chatting up a storm (when our fingers aren’t flying that is).

From the pattern description
This lacey shawl is worked from the top down with increases at the beginning and end of each right side row to create the crescent shape.
The lace patterns are charted, written instructions for the charts are included to help you become more comfortable working from charts.

lambtonpanesLambton Panes by Kate Bostwick

From the pattern description
This pattern takes its name from beautiful old diamond lattice windows on a house on Lambton Road in my neighbourhood. They have taken on different angles as the house has settled over the years, so they almost twinkle as the sun bounces off in different directions when you walk by.

edenprairieEden Prairie by Nancy Whitman

From the pattern description
Inspired by a piece of Prairie-style stained glass, Eden Prairie is my interpretation of that style in a knitted fabric. The shawl is worked from the top down, but the construction method is unique. Starting with two separate triangles that are joined by a diamond, Eden Prairie grows by alternately working stripes on one side then the other.

Uses 1100 yds of fingering weight yarn
