DK Sheaves is a beautiful triangular shaped lace shawl, knit flat, top down.

The pattern incorporates two lace stitches, one of which is an eyelet lace I’ve called Sheaves of Lace for it’s likeness to harvested sheaves of grain.

The DK Sheaves shawl may be knit in combination of colours and a variety of different yarn weights to easily accommodate day/night temperatures and seasonal weather changes.

The DK Sheaves design inspiration commemorates the historical harvest of grains on the Canadian Prairies, and the harvest of grains throughout the world. DK Sheaves is also my respectful tribute to people of the prairie and those who farm the land, harvesting the grains of life to feed the nation.
