Pattern Description:

Mexican Wedding is a rectangular scarf / shawlette that I designed with my own Mexican Wedding in San Cristobal in mind. The Cayenne colorway of SweetGeorgia Superwash Sock recalls the vibrant colors that dominate that city. It is the second pattern in an upcoming collection called "Fire," which will also include Corazon, a pattern that is available on ravelry if you don't yet see it here. (Don't be concerned if you purchase one or both patterns and later decide to buy the whole collection when it is released. The collection price will be automatically reduced by the price of the patterns you have already purchased.)

The lace is appropriate for an intermediate lace knitter, and is worked on both sides of the piece without resting rows, making the shawlette reversible. Lace instructions are charted. There are also written instructions for the first 9 rows of lace to aid the knitter who is less experienced in reading charts, but the entire 45 row repeat is not written out. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
