For years I have seen lace patterns in all kinds of fine yarns. One more beautiful than the next. The problem is that I am a knitter who pretty much won't go smaller than a US 6 / 4 mm needle. In my way of thinking life is simply too short! So when I was asked to do a lacy shawl pattern in Kid Mohair for a Swedish magazine I just stayed true to my philosophy and the Georgina Shawl was born.
I wanted to do something different, put my own spin on things and so created a more geometric lace pattern for the piece which was knit on a US 7 / 4.5 mm needle. This was the result:
I was pleased with the pattern and wondered how it would look in my Heaven's Hand Wool Classic. I hadn't seen any lace patterns done in dk or aran weight yarns, nor in a traditional plyed wool. I was very happy with the results and I didn't need to block the shawl either!!
The Georgina Shawl pattern also works up great in Heaven's Hand Shaman as shown here on Tammy Burke's swatch at left... This version will definitely have to be blocked to achieve the best results!!
... and Heaven's Hand Silke as shown here in my Instagram picture at right which won't need blocking either.
