I am a self taught pattern designer and mom of three children. They're a wild bunch but I keep myself sane by creating the lovely designs that are forever swirling around inside my head...while they play!
My design style reads romantic and at times vintage and whimsical. I am getting to do what I love every single day and hope that knitting and crochet never ever goes away!
Gilded is a beautiful lightweight lace shawl that instantly brings opulence to any wardrobe piece.
A simple repeat makes up the shawl, making this perfect to crochet while visiting with friends.
The delicate fan edging finishes off the shawl adding a little more richness.
The Gauge Swatch for your shawl is utilized wonderfully by way of a gorgeous Neck Piece. Alternately, you could sew the blocked swatch onto a simple t-shirt for pretty embellishment.
Pattern calls for just (2) Balls of Knit Picks' Curio Thread.
Pattern is both written AND charted.
Many hours went into writing and charting out this shawl. Every effort was made to ensure that the pattern is completely free of errata but if you do stumble upon any boo-boos, please feel free to email me and I will do my very best to get back to you right away as well as get any errata up on the pattern page asap!
