I have a new pattern, Arctium, a lacy crescent shawl shown in two different fingering weight sock yarns. The pattern is worked from the top-down, in one continuous piece, using a true lace, pattern that has pattern stitches on both right and wrong side rows. Don't be intimidated, though, there are only a couple of stitches you need to know, and every charted page, has a key on it, so you won't be flipping back and forth to remember which stitch is what.



The pattern is 6 pages, plus a cover, with large charts, a schematic, and a detailed blocking guide to ensure you get great results. I even include some tips for making the shawl larger, if you'd like.



As you can see, even though they are each made with a single skein of fingering weight yarn, these shawls weigh a million pounds, though most of that weight is shame felt only by pets. Actual weight and yardage is supplied on both the ravelry page and in the pattern.

This is just lovely. I agree that both the design and the photos are perfect. If I knit my own version, will I also need three brown-eyed models to show it off?

Meredith MC:

Marnie this is a stunner. I don't often knit lace shawls, but this one will be at the top of my list when I get that hankering again. I love the butterflies that I see in your lace design.


Your poor, abused-by-lace, sad little puppies. Really, I don't know how you can do it to the poor little defenseless creatures.... (Nice shawl, though!)


Marnie, This is a beautiful shawl but the truth is, it will probably never appear on my to do list, unlike some of your other designs. The real reason for my comment today is the first photograph. It is absolutely stunning. The hair style, the angle, the profile combined for a beautiful shot. There was a grace that made me think of ballet. I think you should crop it to a head shot, enlarge it and put it up on a wall somewhere. (Not that you don't have a beautiful figure too. I wish I could say I'm not envious.) My compliments to both model and photograher.
