New Pattern: Idalia Shawl
With a name meaning “behold the sun,” Idalia is an extended semi-circle shawl knit in worsted weight yarn, making it super warm and cozy, and large enough to wrap around your shoulders. It starts at the top center with a stockinette body, and is finished with an airy lace border and a crocheted bind off along the scalloped edge. Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.
This one was worked in Biscotte & Cie Filante (100% superwash merino wool, 225yds/115g skein) in Vitamin C. Thanks to my friend Heather Mathias for the modeled photos!
Due to interest from one of my test knitters, I decided to include both the original edging and the final modified edging. The original edging (“alternate”) uses considerably more yardage than that written into the main pattern, though they do give a slightly different look. The choice is up to you!
