Each designer has written a review of the yarn they used for their projects. When designers submit a proposal for a design we try to accommodate their choice. They are the best judge of what yarn will work best for their projects.
This issue’s topic in this series is on Estonian Lace stitches. Heather Storta discusses the history of these type of patterns as well as how to work them. The pattern for the Quatrefoil Shawl follows.
The topic for this issue’s Fashion Framework is Shawl Shapes. As with all Fashion Framework articles, it provides a complete discussion of what is involved with knitting this type of project as well as tips for success. It is followed by a pattern for a shawl illustating the topic.
This shawl does not have the traditional Estonian shape of a rectangle with a separately sewn-on lace edging but is in the more modern top-down triangle style, with a lace edging knitted as part of the shawl. Nupps and star stitches are used in abundance, giving the knitter lots of opportunities to practice these techniques!
This shawl, worked in Shibui Knits Cima, begins with a provisional cast on. It is then worked in the round with strategically placed increases to make a rectangular shawl. It accompanies the Fashion Framework article on Shawl Shapes.
