Filature is a lace shawl, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters will be able to choose their most comfortable way to follow the pattern. It can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of charts 2 and/or 3 as it is knit. It was designed to show off handspun yarn but will be perfect with any worsted weight yarn that you would like to use. It also looks wonderful in both semi-solids and variegates. Kim and Sharon from the Spin a Shawl group on Ravelry asked me to design a shawl for their Designer series S-KAL. I really love how awesome handspun looks knit up and I wanted to let the yarn shine so I went with a simple rib and lace pattern to showcase the pretty yarn. I hope that the group has fun spinning and knitting this shawl together!!

I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love. You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
