Dreams of Alice Shawlette
This graceful and delicate shawlette was inspired by one of my favorite fairytale books, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. Although Alice doesn’t wear a shawlette in the book, I always pictured her wearing one while sitting at the riverbank with her sister.
This pattern is for a more experienced lace knitter, but could also be knit by an advanced beginner, if taken step by step. The lace patterns themselves aren’t difficult. A perfect gift for a loved one or a stunning accessory for a wedding or special occasion. “Dreams of Alice” is one of my favorite patterns from Wonderlace.
NOTE: For the shawlette size, you will need 290 yards of the main color (here I used white) for the center of the shawlette, 190 yards for the border color (I used turquoise) and 70 yards for the trim (I used black).
small stitch markers, scissors, tapestry needle, row counter, measuring tape, scrap lace weight yarn in a contrasting color (optional…for lifelines)
