Angus' Dream Shawlette
Angus is the name of the Celtic god of youth , beauty and love but, more related to this shawlette it is also the name of the handsome cat living with one of the two very talented knitters who did test knit this design. As soon as Angus saw it finished , he took possession of it, clearly stating “ This is MINE !” .
It’s always a good idea to avoid arguing with a cat so… it is Angus’ Dream !
This shawlette features traditional Shetland lace motifs.
It is worked in garter stitch lace and its semicircular shape is obtained by working four triangles from the neck down. The top edging is worked contemporaneously to the body of the shawl, the bottom edging is worked sideways and joined to the body of the shawl every two rows.
This shawlette has been test knitted in cobweb and lace-weight yarn , I would suggest
using solid colored yarns or a multicolored yarn with very subtle variations of shades.
Pattern is in both chart and text format.
