After The Rain
After The Rain is part of Shawl Joy the first book by Softsweater Knits. You can buy the eBook here on Ravelry or you can wait until Oct 5th to order a lovely hard copy of the book.
After The Rain features the same unique lace rips created by working lace inside short rows. The leafy lace inside this pattern is featured in another popular Softsweater Knits pattern, The Lonely Tree, a combination perfect for when the world starts to cool down and the leaves start to fall. The small of the concrete in Vancouver after the rains is one of the very best smells.
