Rustwing has been released! This is an easy shawl knit in the bias in garter stitch and stripes with a garter-lace border done in a contrasting color.
The gorgeous garter-stitch lace jumped at me in a stitch dictionary and I knew I wanted to use it as a border in a shawl design. The colors for the design were inspired by this little butterfly (or a moth really), Phragmatobia fuliginosa or the ruby tiger: neutral and gray for the main body with a striking orange for contrast.
There are two sizes in the pattern. The small size uses 3.25 mm (US 3) needles and lace-weight yarn approx. 300, 275, and 130 m (or 330, 300, and 145 yd). I've knit the sample in BC Garn Semilla Extra Fino.
The large size is done in fingering-weight yarn on 4.00 mm (US 6) needles. It requires approx. 400, 390, and 145 m (or 440, 425, and 160 yd) of yarn.
