Picnic Perfect Shawl new from Fiber Dreams

Dress in your best for your next picnic, or any occasion, in Fiber Dreams' latest shawl Picnic Perfect.  The lace portion is knit first increasing to full width, then decreasing to a point, next the stitches are picked up and it’s shaped into a crescent with garter stitch short rows.  The pattern includes 4 sizes!  Laura Patterson of Fiber Dreams and I discussed which fingering weight yarn would work best and decided Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock would be perfect.  Crafted of 75% wool and 25% nylon this yarn drapes beautifully, can be machine washed and the luscious hand dyed colorways will appeal to your personal sense of style.
