The Lace Eater shawl came from a desire to depict the all-consuming passion that lace knitting inspires in those of us addicted to lace knitting.
Cables twist and turn as they move across the surface of the knitted fabric - undulating - consuming the lace … like an infection.

The Lace Eater, an elongated triangular crescent shawl, will challenge lace lovers. You will be required to work from multiple charts, to work increases and decreases on RS and WS rows. Nupps and gathered stitches give texture to the fabric, while cables consume lace motifs as they advance across the fabric.
Rippling with cables and lace, wrap the The Lace Eater shawl about your shoulders and celebrate your lace addiction!

Yarn Substitution:
Choose a solid or only slightly variegated fingering weight (NZ 4 ply) yarn for this shawl in order to highlight the textural nature of the fabric produced.
