Pattern Description:

I was so excited to be asked to design a shawlette based on Barbara Walker's stitch patterns. For the main body, I chose a small, allover eyelet that would not be in competition with the self-striping nature of the Regia. Barbara's beautiful "Shower Stitch" pattern grows fluidly out of the eyelets, forming a natural border for the shawl. I've decorated the spine with a classic horseshoe cable, which widens with the change of patterning.
