This lace triangle in Loft is a formal garden of smocked stitches, worked from the edge up with botanical motifs and openwork. The smocking rings a single stitch around its neighbors, gathering up clusters that also decrease the stitch count to achieve the shaping.

Irina Dmitrieva has previously conjured three beautiful cabled hats that have been Wool People favorites (Scrollwork, Gentian, & Rambler); now she’s branching out into lace and we are proud to offer her first shawl design.

Loden is active knitting that will require your full attention; there’s always something happening on right-side rows, while wrong-side rows let you catch your breath. Most of the charts are fairly simple and can be memorized, but the smocking stitches may involve a maneuver you haven’t tried before.
