Adele Varens shawlette
Charming, theatrical little Adele, the orphan that Jane Eyre takes to her heart. This shawl is just what that stylish little Parisien might have been glad to receive from the clever hands of the ever-knitting Mrs Fairfax as a gift to accompany her favourite party dress.
As written it produces a small shawlette but can be easily resized into a bigger shawl. The stitch pattern is translated from an original Victorian source book of 1849.
Written with heavy lace in mind (look for lace yarns with about 600m/100g), but will produce a similar sized shawlette in 3ply, e.g lightweight sock yarns.
Includes full charted & written instructions with links to tutorials for less familiar techniques.
The lace has a fairly wide repeat, but is simple and intuitive. It does have some decreasing on the wrong side. Some lace experience will help you here.
Can also be purchased as part of the Charlotte Bronte Shawls collection
