Don’t let the name fool you!

  • An aqua lacy triangle shawl.

Arctic Ice, my latest shawl design, is cozy, warm and light as air! It is knit up holding one strand each of Marianated Yarns Aerie Lace and Keebler Fingering together on a larger-sized needle. The looser gauge makes for a faster knit and gives the shawl loft and drape. The pattern is available in my shop on Ravelry and PayHip and is currently 25% off until February 28th. Marian also has shawl kits (which include the pattern) available on her website.

PATTERN DETAILS
Arctic Ice is an asymmetrical, triangular shawl consisting of mostly relaxing garter stitch coupled with a simple yarn over detail for most of the shawl (making it great for binge watching your favorite show). A simple lace pattern completes the border. The yarn is held double throughout the shawl. A Stitch Count Table for section repeats is included in a separate file with this pattern. Directions are both written and charted.
