Inspired completely by the stunning jewel tones in Tanis Fiber Arts’ Cosmic Blue Label yarn, Ultravioleta is an airy, feminine shawlette with just the right amount of sparkle and texture. The piece is knit from the top center down beginning with a garter tab cast on, after which regularly spaced increase rows create a semi- circular shape. Small bobbles are added to the lacey chevrons’ “points” and a garter stitch band defines the edging. The lace is simple, but involves patterning on both the right and wrong sides; written instructions and charts have both been provided to help the knitter stay on track.

Specific yarn requirements:
Tanis Fiber Arts Cosmic Blue Label Fingering (84% merino, 16% sparkling nylon; 420 yds/ 385 m per 115g); 1 skein in Luxe; or 420 yds/ 385 m of a fingering weight yarn

US 6 (4 mm) circular needle, at least 24”/ 60 cm long, or size needed to obtain gauge

16 sts & 28 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Ultraviolet Chevron Lace pattern
17 sts & 36 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Garter Stitch

16 Oct. 2016: While the Chart was correct, the written instructions for Row 9 of the Ultraviolet Lace pattern was missing a k1 before the pattern repeat begins. This was corrected in version 2 of the pattern.
