Remember last summer? Seems like a distant memory now. While we were in Spain in August I was knitting happily away on a new shawl in Lotus Cashmere DK. Everyday during my siesta and in the evenings I was knitting away in the shade on the balcony. So I called this shawl Siesta.
Siesta is worked sideways from upper right tip to the beaded picot cast off. The body of the shawl is in garter stitch but it has an interesting lace border which is worked alongside the main body.
Siesta takes 2 skeins of Lotus Cashmere DK (which is actually a 4ply/fingering weight yarn). There will be kits in the shop later today. The beads for the picot cast off are added using the crochet hook method. The lace pattern has chart and written instructions.
Siesta can be purchased on Ravelry (Patternfish and Love Knitting links will be added when they go live).
The Lotus Cashmere DK is GORGEOUS! Buttery soft, warm, silky and did I mention soft? It also wears really well. I think this may be my all time favourite yarn! The 15% off sale is still on but finishes on 25 January.
