Taking elements from traditional Estonian lace knitting, Elizabeth Lovick has designed this beautiful square shawl. It is worked from the centre out, starting with a circular cast-on method, and incorporates a range of patterns including hearts formed from clusters of nupps. Elizabeth has knitted her shawl using a pure baby alpaca laceweight yarn from Knit Picks, called Alpaca Cloud; it is available in a wide range of muted and bright shades.
