The Self Fringing Shawl by L & B Yarn Co. knit out of Noro Kiso is a true work of art. A vivid marled yarn, Kiso is a lovely blend of wool, alpaca, and silk. The shawl is worked from one side to the other increasing to the middle and decreasing back down to the other end. The pattern is easy to memorize and this project can be worked up in just a couple of days.
I love fringe but I don’t necessarily like adding fringe at the end of the project. The finishing of this shawl is so much fun! When you finish knitting you unravel the fringe without having to cut dozens upon dozens of pieces and then attaching.
When you unravel the fringe it is wrinkled from being knitted. We machine washed the shawl by itself on the gentle cycle in cold water and when I pulled the piece out the fringe had twisted on itself!! What an awesome surprise. This just added more wow to the finished piece. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
This shawl from the Interlacement Design Team and Sheryl Thies is a soft accent to dress up your wardrobe. The crescent shape shawl starts at the bottom edge with the waves of wheat lace pattern and ends with short rows in stockinette stitch. The short rows create a wider section at the center and narrows at each end. Zig Zag is 100% rayon and has a beautiful drape making it the perfect match for the Waves of Grain Shawl.
This yarn is also great for weaving, knitting, or crochet. The pattern is easy to follow including written instructions for the lace section. To take a look at the pattern just click here.
