Lace Mash Up will take you on a tour of all the lace stitches I developed for my Lace Around the World Seminar with Knit Stars 2.0!

Mashup is worked in a unique way! First you work the right wing from the tip towards the center, then you place it aside and work the left wing the same way. Then these two wings are joined together by a center panel, and finally stitches are picked up along the bottom edge of the shawl and a Shetland Lace edging is worked down.

There are lace stitches inspired by Shetland, Japan, Estonia and more! All of the stitches are both charted and written out… and because I know someone is going to ask this, if you don’t want to work the Nupps you can just knit the stitch, or place a bead on it!

Lace Mash Up is knit with Jamieson and Smith Shetland Heritage, which recreates the original characteristics of handspun ‘wursit’ used in Shetland. The yarn is replicated from that found in knitted Fair Isle garments in the collection of Shetland Museum and Archives. It was perfect to use in this shawl as its “sticky” nature made working some of the tricksier stitches much easier!

It isn’t too late to sign up for KnitStars 2.0… and if you do you’ll get a coupon code for a free pattern from me that you can use for this or any other of my patterns on Ravelry!
