It's got to be a lace-weight silk-mohair, or silk-alpaca-mohair (Krea Deluxe) for an ethereal, feather-weight, kitten-soft shawl!
This pattern is published in 52 Weeks of Shawls by Laine Publishing.
Windy Fields was inspired by the golden fields of grain waving in the gentle breeze of late summer. Small needle size combined with silk and mohair creates a feeling of delicate softness.
This rectangular scarf is knitted from one short edge to the other. While the lace pattern is simple and repetitive, the increases, decreases, yarn overs and bubbles also make it fun to knit. And if you make a small mistake while knitting, nobody will notice it in the final piece!
