Hi Everyone,

This week’s free pattern is crocheted in Cascade Ultra Pima. It is the Lavender Reverie Wrap.

It is created by crocheting a series of motifs and joining them later, so you could use this as a travel project over the winter and you’ll have a great layer for spring and summer.

Cascade Ultra Pima is a soft, 100% cotton that is machine washable. It has 220 yards per hank and comes in wonderful colors. It has a nice sheen too!

Enjoy!

Free Pattern Thursday:Dandelion Lace Shawl from Classic Elite

Hi Everyone,

This week’s free pattern is the Dandelion Lace Shawl from the folks at Classic Elite. It is knit in Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace. It is a beautiful blend of alpaca and silk that works up into lightweight and airy projects.

The pattern offers three different shawl sizes each taking just one back of the main color and one of the contrasting color. The sample is a size small, which is a great size for a little shawlette or to wear as a scarf. The largest size is 54″ wide and 21 ½” deep at the center point.

The dropped stitches on the lace border are fun. If you’ve ever knit a Clapotis (from Knitty.com), you know how much fun it is to drop stitches on purpose!

I love that you can make this shawl your own by choosing the color you like, or even knitting it in just one color. It would make a lovely gift too, since it is time to start thinking about that. (I’ve already started making a list in my head, we’ll see how much of it I get done.)

Happy Knitting!

Free Pattern Thursday: Lace Shawl in Regia Lace

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
