Wings of butterflies and moths with their fragile beauty inspire this design. I wanted to capture their delicate quality and I believe that this lace pattern expresses that. The yarn color is reminiscent of the silvery moon while the beads sparkle like the first stars in an evening sky.

The shawlette’s crescent shape helps it stay in place more readily than traditional triangular shawls and its smaller dimensions provide a weightless little cover up for summer dresses. Knitted out of a single skein of Malabrigo Lace, with all reverse rows purled and the beads optional, Pavonia is an ideal quick project for any knitter, even one new to lace knitting.
