Waiting for Lilacs
This is the second in a series of two spring accessories (see also In Due Time) that I’m releasing in the late fall because I’m impatient for spring.
This heart or bandana-shaped shawlette features a lace stitch pattern near the top line and a different stitch pattern across the bottom - buds, blossoms, and branches in all. The rest of the piece is knit in plain stockinette.
I used 2 25-gram balls of DROPS Kid-Silk (75% mohair; 25% silk; 200 meters/218 yards per 25g ball) in color 09 - a light lilac.
This is so light and lovely, and I enjoyed working with this yarn, especially on US 4/3.5mm needles.
