Another piece in my Roxborough Collection.

This is huge, cozy, and quite simple to work up. I love wearing a shawl, and I’m really too impatient for fiddly lace and thin yarns. Plus, I live in New England where it’s about to get cold and damp and I want something a little more substantial.

In this shawl, I worked the Shetland bead lace with ribs to create strong, diagonal lines. A border of eyelets and garter stitch intersects the overall direction with a deep, horizontal edge that adds a little texture and contrast to the shawl body.

It can be easily modified for size or yarn quantity, but I love these big, bold dimensions. The lightness of the O-Wool makes for a soft and easy fabric to wear around the neck, and the gorgeous lavender keeps this feminine, without requiring a lot of lace or detail to do so. It was a perfect, mindless summer knit and I know it will soon be a favorite fall wrap….
