"She's a brick house, she's mighty mighty..."
This shawl is all that and more: Warm and cozy like a home, built to last, and keeping you looking fine. Make this a study in color; try different color combinations to discover the best mortar for your bricks. Brick House is based on an easily memorized brick eyelet pattern.

Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting years ago and hasn't looked back since. Laura is currently enamored with lace, and with incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this direction. She travels often to teach these techniques and more at workshops around the country. Her designs have been featured in a number of online publications, including Interweave, Knitty.com, Schaefer Yarn Co. and Creative Knitting. Her new book, Knockout Knits, will be released in September 2014.View all patterns by designer (27) »
