I’m officially obsessed with shawls. However unlikely it seems, considering I don’t really wear shawls and that I’m left-handed and had a proper hassle before I figured out how to deal with charts, I now can’t think about anything else knitwise right now. I knit my first lace shawl in May, and now I’ve created my first own lace shawl pattern. :)
Here’s Carmellia, a triangular (but slightly crescent shaped) lace shawl inspired by the leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). It’s available in two different sizes, the large one (the green version) and a slightly smaller one (the white version). It’s knit on 4 mm needles and in Ullcentrum‘s 2-ply. The large version uses <300 g (212 g in my shawl, up to 280 g in other yarns have been reported by the test knitters), the smaller <200g (130 g in my shawl).
