Thérèse's knitting


Cobweb shawl

Designer: Emma Crew, modified by me
Pattern source: MagKnits here
Yarn: Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Dewberry (45g), Elegance (10g), and Drab (18g)
Notes: This is a simple semicircular shawl, really almost mindless knitting, but looks very effective. The "lace" pattern is nothing but eyelet rows. The shape is achieved by doubling the number of stitches at four points during the knitting (via K1, YO).

Modifications: added extra colors; worked last section before border (the gold stripe) with double yarnovers; used a different border entirely that I thought matched the design better ("Bold-Faggotted Edging" from Barbara Walker's Second Treasury).
