I designed both this shawlette and the yarn with recent trends in mind. Ombré! Chevrons! Pointy, Kerchief Scarves! Oh My! But then I turned it down a notch. Because if I’m going to take the time to knit something I want it to be classic and in style long after these fads are over. So the ombré is a slow transition from one color to another and the chevrons are subtly incorporated into the lace. The shawl is Classicly Trendy. Or Trendy-ish. Or inspired by the trends. Or just TRENDY.

I designed this lace pattern based off of patterns in the book The Vogue Knitting Stitchionary Volume 1: Knit and Purl. I adapted several lace charts to create the chevron design.

The yarn was dyed by Destination Yarn with this pattern in mind. The yarn shown is one of the Subtle Ombré colorways however any of the Souvenir (DK weight) would work well.

This pattern uses exactly one skein of the yarn. There were only a few yards left over. Therefore gauge is extremely important. It was designed this way - to use exactly one skein - to make best use of the color shifting yarn.

This pattern currently only includes a chart for the lace section. I am working on a version of the pattern with sizing options for different weights of yarn which will include written instructions as well as the chart.
