This shawl design is named “Eve” because she did, after all, create the first leaf design garment way back at the beginning of time in the Garden of Eden.
Simple elegance in a long, narrow, crescent-shaped shawl with a leaf lace border. Optional inserts of matching leaf lace frame sections of stockinette, providing a nice mix of easy knitting and interesting construction of the lace inserts.
This shawl is worked end-to-end in a seamless manner and includes two size options.
Joined border technique is used for the optional leaf inserts. Link to tutorial is included in the instructions.
Recommend any fingering or heavy lace yarn with good stitch definition. Sample shown was worked in Malabrigo Sock in color “Pearl”. It is also beautiful in Bumblebirch Heartwood in color “Dandelion”. The design would lend itself equally well to a gradient yarn.
Experience Level: Accessible to an advanced beginner lace knitter. Instructions are both written and charted.
