Knitting plays a fairly prominent sideline role in the Gilmore Girls. When “A Year In The Life” came out in 2016 and I heard Lorelei’s opening line “I smell snow” I knew immediately that I needed to knit up a shawl.
This crescent-shaped shawl is whimsical, timeless, complicated, but simple… just like Lorelei Gilmore! Beginning with 10 rows of garter stitch the shawl gently morphs into a lovely diamond lace pattern which seems complicated but the odd rows are knitted-so it’s not. The challenging lace pattern is interrupted with comfortable eyelet bands before reverting back to the diamond lace for a bit. The shawl is then finished off with a contrasting color and mesh lace. Then bookend your shawl by using the main color in your cast off picot edge.
