Riviera - The Knitter 82

Issue 82 of The Knitter is in the shops now and it's a beautiful spring issue. 

My contribution to this issue is Riviera which is knitted out of Debbie Bliss Rialto LaceThe freshness of spring is captured in this light, floaty shawl. It’s a top-down, triangular shawl with a diamond lace pattern, worked in a lilac shade with an edging in a soft citrus colour. The cast-off is worked in the main shade, to contrast with the edging.


You should have enough of the second colour to work at least one additional repeat of Chart B before starting the edging. Or you could do the shawl in one colour and you may be able to do it out of about 600m of lace weight yarn. This does depend on knitting to the stated tension though.

I just love the soft, feminine look of Riviera and hopefully I should get the sample back just in time to wear it for summer. Rialto Lace comes in a huge variety of beautiful colours. This yarn is equivalent of 800m per 100gr and most yarn companies who offer a lace weight yarn and indie dyers have yarns in this thickness so there's a huge choice of yarn available. 

Which yarn will you be knitting your Riviera in?
