This is Escalope – an elegant little half-octagon shawl that’s worked from the center out. The entire concept was inspired by scallops; the shellfish’s shapes & habits, the shifts in symbolism, and the scallop as a structural shape.
Yesterday evening, Escalope was released as part of Make 1 Yarn’s Tapas Club, which features local designers and the gorgeous yarns of Yummy Yarn Studios.
It’s currently available exclusively as part of a kit from Make 1; the kit includes the pattern, a skein of Yummy Yarns 50-50 merino tencel fingering in a unique variation of this shade, a custom designed bag with a wrist loop and zip, and a fun stitch marker.
This is such a great little shawl to knit, and the instructions are both written and charted – super friendly for beginning lace knitters! I’ve also included detailed blocking instructions and a schematic of the marker usage, so there’s nothing to be intimidated by.
It’s on Ravelry, so you can add your projects in. If you want to get your hands on it, you’d better stop by Make 1 (or give them a call http://makeoneyarns.com/ ), there’s only a limited amount of the kits available, and you don’t want to miss out…
(Also note… despite the test knit and tech edit, one small mistake slipped through in the written description; the errata sheet is included with the pattern, so be sure to make note of it.)
