Two Spring Shawls



Here are two triangular shawls I finished in the last few days. The green one is for me; it's Evelyn Clark's Shetland Triangle Shawl from Wrap Style, knit in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light. The pink one is a gift. It's knit in Malabrigo laceweight; I designed it following the guidelines in Evelyn Clark's wonderful book, Knitting Lace Triangles.

I love the range of lace. The Shetland in Ultra Alpaca Light is warm and cozy, substantial but not heavy. The Malabrigo is as light as air. Best of all, it came out just the right size for the recipient.

I especially love the pink shawl. Is there any specific pattern I could follow or did you totally make this up as you went along?

To knit the pink shawl, I followed guidelines in Evelyn Clark's book Knitting Lace Triangles. If you don't want to have to make any design decisions yourself, there are some patterns in the book you could knit exactly as written. I improvised mine.
