No rush…is a feminine shawl, fun and fast to knit. It is knitted in a garter stitch with striped and lace sections added for textural and colour interest. The sample shown is worked in Manos Lace held double and Alpaca Lace Cascade and Merino Lace Zagroda held together. No rush…can be knitted in any weight yarn to different effects. The simple lace pattern is also charted and very easily worked.
