Pattern Details

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! ....................................
