Lace shawls come in many shapes and sizes. Ilove working with lace weight yarn; however,once the weather begins to cool its just not quiteenough warmth for me. For me this shawl is theantitheisis of lace knitting. DK weight yarn,straight geometric shapes...and well I do lovebold colors, so that part is noting new for me.Taking a traditional square shawl shape andadding in additional "squished squares" (as mymiddle school math teacher referred torhombuses) brings a lovely lace detail. This laceshawl is making me wish for wintery weather so Ican show it off!
The lace motif throughout this shawl is rows ofvarious different sizes of diamonds. Varying insize and number per round, ending with astraight edge to keep with the strong geometrictheme in this piece.
