First, let me say this pattern is named for the great Carole Lombard. The Academy Award nominated actress who tragically passed away in 1942. Her beauty, elegance, and grace inspired every stitch of this piece. :-)
When I started out to design a shawl I knew I had some guidelines. That I would need to follow. The shawl had to be top down, had to have garter stitch, had to have stripes, and couldn’t use too much yarn. I chose this exquisite yarn from Sublime called Egyptian Cotton DK. A DK weight cotton that carries more as a fingering than anything else. I chose it in the fabulous numbered colors that I call, Maritime, Cream, Dusty Rose, and Maroon. I chose a stripe pattern I had seen on a shawl from the 1950’s and adapted it for the pattern!
