Simple, elegant lace in a surprising, long, slightly asymmetrical triangular shape: That’s Naiada! Knit with a warm DK weight yarn in a beautiful color it will look great under your winter coat or wrapped around your shoulders for extra warmth. The colorway shown in the pictures is ”Neptun Dark“ and looks very much like the dark turquoise clouds on planet Neptune. I named this shawl ”Naiada“ after Naiad, which is one of Neptune’s moons and, in Greek mythology, the name of the nymphs guarding wells and rivers.
You start at one corner of the triangle, adding wider and wider rows, thereby forming a long, slightly asymmetric triangle. The pattern will work at any gauge with any amount of yarn.
The lace pattern is very straightforward and easy to remember. You can work it using the (very simple) written instructions or the charts, whatever you prefer. It’s really smooth sailing on the lace ocean which is also doable for beginning lace knitters.
