At least in my neck of the woods summer has finally come into full swing with lots of sunshine and warm weather. Aand what better knitting projects are there for hot days than lightweight lace projects? So it is a perfect match that Knit Picks released today there newest colleciton of lace patterns, Haven - Knit Lace Patterns. The collection includes 13 patterns for lace garments and accessories and I'm thrilled that one of my patterns made it into the colleciton: Ocean Mist.
This stole uses Shetland Lace stitch patterns and is also knit the traditional way. First a center is worked and border patterns are added on both sides. Finally, the edging is knit on sideways.
Shetland Lace has long been known for its airy, light-as-afeather appearance, just like the translucence of sea spray when ocean waves crash against the shore, which was the inspirations for the pattern name.
Ocean Mist is now available as individual download or as part of the Haven collection from the Knit Picks website, here.
