Polar Lights

Aurora borealis, northern lights, polar lights…

 

Polar Lights is inspired by nature’s phenomenal light show. Criss-crossing lace sections in contrasting colors alternate with soothing garter stitch in the main color, like auroral arcs covering the night sky.

 

The shawl is knit on the bias, starting from the upper right corner and continuing down towards the bottom left edge. The last two stitches of each row are slipped to create a neat edging. The shawl is finished with a picot bind-off.


This pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are given for the lace pattern.
