Dulcavina

  • At one point I fell head-over-heels in love with vine lace stitches. This shawl has the three that I found. One on each end of center, a different one in the center, and a lovely vine border around the outside. I started with the two hanks of green yarn. I soon discovered that that would not be enough, and that there was also no way that I could find the same dye lot again, seeing as how I bought it when I was out of town. I did have a hank of the lovely black, though, so used that for the applied border. I started knitting really fast as I approached the final corner… and ran out of yarn. I did know where I got the black, so I contacted the store. Yes! She had one more hank of that dye lot. Hooray!

    The rectangular shawl starts at one end with a provisional cast on. The first motif is knit on this end, a second in the center, returning to the first motif on the other side. The border, a third vine motif, is knit on last.
