New Pattern Alert: KoyoShawl

December 23rd, 2011

It’s not fall anymore, but will you forgive me for publishing an autumn-themed pattern?

Just released, after much delay, Koyo, a delicate shawl for delicate yarn.

The orange shawl is knit with Helen’s Lace from Lorna’s Laces, in the colourway “Satsuma”. A perfect color name for a Japanese-inspired shawl, don’t you think?

Technically, though, this isn’t a new design. I originally designed this for the Year of Lace in 2010, using Indigodragonfly’s gorgeous Merino-Silk Lace in a custom colourway.

Among the things I love about this design: the delicate top border, the gentle deconstruction of leaves into an organic ripple, and the inset details at the points and corners.

I also love the size. At 70″ x 34″ after blocking, it’s just big enough without overwhelming the wearer.

In this way, Koyo is an ideal accent piece for any season, not just fall.

More photos and detailed information available here.

Happy holidays, everyone!

    I loved this pattern. Out of all the YOL patterns, I belive this one was my favorite. I loved knitting it. I especially liked the knit on edging.
