This is the small shawl I made for the Ravellenic games. It’s a Ravelry-wide KAL (knit-a-long) with events named cutely like Olympic events. Lace Luge, stuff like that.
This shawl is in a lovely Dutch orange called Citrus. The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. The pattern is Frambuesa by Julia Trice.
It was a fun fast knit and actually I would recommend it for a first lace project for new lace knitters. It looks a lot more complex than it is – which I think makes for a really special lace pattern – looks impressive while being easy to make.
I only had one skein of this yarn, but I have a fair amount left over. I could probably have made it a bit bigger but I followed the instructions exactly. It wraps twice around my neck like a very pretty cowl/scarf. Maybe at some point I’ll have a photo of me wearing it, but with timing, weather and other priorities I just didn’t manage it. These photos were taken with the shawl hanging on the hedges in front of my house. At least it wasn’t raining!
