Featuring two beautiful colors of Miss Babs fingering weight “Yummy” this shawl creates an intricate homage to the elaborate Ves costumes worn by the traditional Kandyan dancers of Sri Lanka.
By combining a slip stitch mosaic technique with lace you can create this piece while holding only one color of yarn at a time. Essentially, you are knitting stripes. Fancy stripes, but stripes nonetheless.
For any knitter with lace experience this pattern should prove engaging and a tiny bit challenging. I would not recommend it for a novice.
