Espalier Shawl

Today, my shawl, Espalier, is published in Knitcircus Magazine #9! (the shawl photos are on page 49) There are some great FREE articles in this issue including an interview with Lily Chin, a visit to Rainbow Fleece Farm and Terri Shea talks about Selbuvotter! (and lots more) I plan to savor them over the next few days over morning coffee.

Here are details and photos for Espalier :-}

This medium-weight drapey stole is perfect for a cool spring day. The unusual stitch (drawn from a late 1800’s publication) is lacy yet substantial and looks wonderful with jeans or a flirty skirt.
