Introducing the Spring Maple Shawl

I'm very excited to announce a new Exclusive Pattern, the Spring Maple shawl by lace designer Linda Choo. Its knit in just one skein of my Lace.

Inspired by the leaves that grow on a Japanese Maple tree in her garden Choo shares her inspiration for this design..."After a long winter, we look forward to spring when the first bulbs are blooming, the flowering shrubs are in full bloom, and the Japanese maples start to bud.

The spring colors of the maples are as varied and vibrant as the autumn foliage. From the verdant green of the viridis to the cream of the ukegumo and spring ghost and the brilliant yellow/green of the aureum, there is a wide range to chose from. Its difficult to pick a favorite, but the shimmering coral of the Geisha, the translucent peach of the bonfire, and the rich spring red of the purple ghost are just a few of my favorites."

Spring Maple is crescent shaped and knit in one piece from the neck down. Beginning at the center back neck the stitch count increases on every right side row. This is considered to be an intermediate level design, only charts are provided and there are several stitch motifs. The stitch count is not constant. However, an advanced beginner may also enjoy this shawl.

And its available as a PDF Pattern only with no shipping fees and as a Kit with my Lace.
