Clarus is worked top down and is constructed of 2 symmetrical triangles separated by a center lace panel. The lace motif is the same throughout the body of the shawl so once you get the hang of the pattern over a smaller number of stitches you are good to go. The gently ruffled border is worked seamlessly off the body of the shawl. Clarus is written in two different sizes, for two different weight yarns... possibilities abound!

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) »
