  1. Lace Leaf Shawl

    Posted on

    One of our most popular courses at Marmalade Yarns is Lace Knitting, run by Mary Henderson. She is patient and entertaining and uses a pattern she devised called Lace Leaf which is perfect for beginners.

    We have been selling a paper copy of the pattern in the shop for long time but I have been spurred on by the lovely Claire of Mollie and Claire, and the pattern is now available as a download on Ravelry here.

    Claire has knitted this pattern a lot, she knitted a jubilee version for us and has knitted several others, seen here and here.

    It is a fantastic pattern, rhthmic, soothing and beautiful. It works well with plain, semisolids and multicoloured yarns. You can knit it in any weight of yarn and make it in any size.

    So now you can enjoy the delights of this pattern even if you are miles from Frome. We would love to see your resulting shawls so if you make one please send us a photo.

    Happy Knitting.
