If you have stopped by the store on a weekend recently you might have seen Carol’s beautiful Work In Progress – Outlaw.
Outlaw is designed by our very own Celeste Young and I hope I don’t embarrass her too much while gushing over how much we enjoy it. The pattern is easy to follow and provides instructions for two sizes – a shawl and a neckerchief. We have the larger shawl size on display in glowing Berroco Lustra and Carol is making the neckerchief in Cascade 220 Heather.
Carol says it took her a little while to get into the groove of the lace pattern, but now that she has it going it’s nice and smooth. With each row she is looking at the yarn over in the previous row to keep herself on track.
I thoroughly enjoyed working on the shawl size in Lustra. The bands of zig-zag alternate with stockinette stitch so you have some straight knitting between charts. And working from the bottom up gives you the feeling that you’re knitting faster and faster as the rows decrease!
