Some time ago I became smitten by the idea of making this Elizabeth Zimmerman shawl. It's one recently republished in Vogue Knitting, hence I own the pattern. The idea is an extension of her pi shawl, and for me, much more appealing. You start off with some stitches for the back of the neck, and increase. The whole thing is done in garter stitch, so the increases are every x rows, where the stitch count is doubled in the descendants of the original stitches. Meanwhile, paired increases create the front cornered effect.
Enough - I'm using yarns from my good friend Barb of Lost flock fibers on Etsy. Her we've got claret, good dirt, and wood rose. Delicious! The pic is meant to show a little of the lace I've chosen for the 12 ridge (outermost wood rose) section and the 24 ridge (claret) section, but also how I plan to continue. Complete the current, 24 row section in claret, then go on to a different lace pattern in good dirt and then do a knitted on lace edging in the wood rose again. Think it'll work? I do! And then I'll do the blocking magic and have a light and colourful but not garish cover-up for all seasons!
