In Vino Veritas
Stripes, lace and texture are the ingredients that went into the blend that is In Vino Veritas. An easy-to-work snowdrop lace pattern in two colors forms the main part of this small shawl. A ribbed section topped off with a row of eyelets follows the stripes, while short rows create the crescent shape. You could change things up by working the shawl in one variegated skein instead of two different colors, or by working the striped section in more than two colors. Taking just 280 yards (256m) of the main color and 120 yards (110m) of the contrasting color, it’s the perfect little project for a pretty fingering or sock yarn.
