Frida Fuchs’ new yarn, ZACKIG Aran, is perfect for this cosy and heartwarming shawl. The soft and plump texture of the yarn lends itself perfectly to long rows of stockinette, but also adds an interesting twist to traditional lace patterns.
Honigwaffel is a simple design, yet not boring at all: it is the perfect place for beautiful hand-dyed yarns to shine. Select two of your favorite colours and get going! The lace follows an easy and simple chart and is suitable even for newbies in the Land of Lace.
