The third & final pattern in my Lace Revelations collection is the MetaKnit Shawl. This rectangular shawl has V-shaped motifs that look like knit stitches.
It’s knit from one end to the other, so it’s easy to re-size to make it wider or to change the length. I made the medium width and did 27 repeats of the chart. I used about 875 yards (803m) of Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Deep Purple.
I really enjoyed the challenge of working with the same technique (reversible tessellated lace) to come up with 3 unique shawls, each with a completely different shape and construction. Plus, after working on a 12-piece collection for a few years, it was nice to bang out a small set of related pieces in a relatively short period of time. Mind you, I was swatching some of the ideas as far back as my trip to Rhinebeck, but I do have a day job and a family!
The Lace Revelations ebook is on sale for $12 US until end of day April 25, 2016 (automatic discount from the regular $15 US price tag).

I’m not sure exactly what is on my design agenda next, but I have 2 or 3 projects that I need to get started on so that they’re finished in time. And there’s another longer term project that should be on the back burner, but guess what I swatched for today! Sometimes things just want to be started right away.
