FO 2005-15: Fiber Trends Leaf Lace Shawl

Admittedly, not the best photo. Look at this post to see the richness of the colors.

Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Super Sock Merino, colors = Old Rose & Quarry Hill. One 420yd hank of each, 840yds total.
Needles: Denise #7
Pattern: Leaf Lace Shawl, Fiber Trends
Finished dimensions: 65 x 34 inches

Color patterning --
  • Section A: This shawls starts with Old Rose, and the 10 row lace pattern is repeated 7 times.
  • Section A+B: Quarry Hill is introduced at the start of the next lace pattern repeat. Both colors are used for the next 3 repeats, alternating colors every other row.
  • Section B: Quarry Hill is worked for the next 3 repeats + the edge lace pattern.
Total number of 10 row lace pattern repeats = 13.

Less than 2 feet of Quarry Hill was left, but I have 11gms of Old Rose remaining. If I knit this again (and I probably will), I'll work the A+B section for a few more rows before proceeding with the B section.

  • Hey, another FO! It looks lovely. The wavy edge is particularly nice with the leaf motif. Now let's see.. which of your many knitted tops will this look best with?

  • Beautiful Leaf Lace Shawl! I'm about six rows away from finishing mine -- I'm using Elsebeth Lavold's Silk & Wool in the light blue color, and am using dark blue beads on the points. I've really enjoyed making this shawl and if I make another one, will think about using dark, vibrant, rich colors like yours. Good job!
