Aria With Variations

This pattern is available for $6.00 USD buy it now

“Aria With Variations” is a somewhat geometric and orderly lace design collection inspired by fine lace-weight yarn (and JS Bach’s Goldberg Variations).

Aria: 4 nupps in diamond
Variation 1: 1 nupp in diamond
Variation 2: no nupps, just diamonds.

Aria motif and two variations on the theme, can be worked into stole, square shawl, or cowl, in four sizes each!

Shown in two smallest sizes:

  • Aria stole in pink in size 1.
  • Variation 1 stole in grey in size 2.

Pattern has four charts with written instruction.

Choose smaller sizes for a quick scarf, or shawlette, or larger sizes for a beautiful neck & shoulder wrap to really sink your needles into! Cowls are a quick knit and easiest of them all, with far less yardage, and knit in-the-round. Square shawl variation can be made into a throw very easily without nupps in any weight up to bulky, or try even finer weight yarn like cobweb, for a gossamer fabric reminiscent of Shetland & Estonian fine lace knitting together!
