Free Pattern Thursday: Lace Shawl in Regia Lace

Thursday, September 22nd, 2011

Hi Everyone,

The free pattern this week is the beautiful Lace Shawl from Regia.

It is knit in Regia Lace which is a blend of superwash wool and polyamide with a lovely color effect that transitions from color to color. It is a charted pattern, so you’ll want to keep that in mind. I love working lace from charts. To me, it is a great representation of what the pattern looks like and it makes more sense to my brain looking at that rather than a jumble of words.

Happy Knitting,

Mary
