The first ever Lace Eater Mash-up!
Sometimes certain lace motifs really take my fancy, and I think they deserve another chance to shine in a beautiful design. In this delicate, laceweight crescent shawl I have used some of my favourite motifs from previous designs including: Biophilia, Herbfield, Seaward, and Ribbonwood. Lace stitches open up the fabric while cables draw together stitches in sweeping lines of denser fabric to create visual interest. I created a simple border featuring a sequence of single buds which gives the piece a delicate scalloped edge.

A note regarding yardage.
I used 2 skeins of Malabrigo Silkpaca for this shawl. If you substitute yarn you will require approximately 700 metres / 766 yards of laceweight yarn to complete this project.
