Lacamas is a crescent-shaped shawlette with a rippling lace edging. The edging is knit first, then the shawlette is shaped with simple stockinette short rows which do not require a "wrap-and-turn". Lacamas is then finished off with an easy, sewn bind-off technique that ensures the bind-off edge is nice and loose. Whether your preference is solid or variegated colors, this shawlette is the perfect quick knit for showing off your favorite fingering weight yarn!
The name for this pattern comes from the Native American word, "lacamas", which means rushing, rippling water. A fitting description of the beautiful lace edging of this shawlette!

Despite telling my mom years ago that I would never become a knitter, I took up a pair of needles in 2009 and haven’t put them down since! Knitting is an outlet for my creative energy and my desire to always be making things with my hands. My goal as a designer is to create unique knitting patterns; inspired by the beautiful, wild and rugged landscape of the Pacific Northwest--a place I loves to explore and am privileged to call home. I strives to write patterns that are easy to follow and simply enjoyable both to knit and to wear.
Keeping busy by day as a wife, mother of three and homemaker, I love to spend my evenings curled up on the couch with a cup of coffee, knitting, planning and sketching my never-ending design ideas. :)
If you have an questions about any of my patterns, would like to become a test knitter or to set up a trunk show, please feel free to contact me! I’d love to help!
