It’s time to reveal the second pattern in my Lace Revelations collection. The Lucky Number Shawl is a top-down shawl with rectangular lace sections in the front and back divided by triangles of seed stitch. This construction means that it sits nicely on the body and can be pinned in place. I made the sample with about 850 yards of Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace in Oyster.
What’s with the name Lucky Number Shawl? As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a strong attachment to the number 3. This shawl is full of 3-sided shapes, so it’s as full of threes as it could be!
The lace panel at the back is twice as wide as the ones at the front, so there are even more triangles:
The reversible nature of each pattern in this shawl means that the light catches the triangles differently depending on how it’s worn:
The Lace Revelations ebook will have one more pattern for a total of 3 reversible lace shawls by April 25th, 2016, and it’s on sale for $12 US until then (automatic discount from the regular $15 US price tag).
The Lucky Number Shawl is $6 US.
I’m tempted to try this again in the round as a poncho, perhaps with fingering weight yarn. If anyone wants to try that, send me a message and I’ll give you some guidance.
Stay tuned! I’ll share the final pattern in the collection with you next Monday.
