Trailing Vines Shawl

I’m beginning this blogging journey on the advent of my first knitwear design being published. It is the Trailing Vines Shawl, featured in the TSC Artyarns Second Collection. It’s knit in the oh-so-soft Tranquility yarn, a wool/cashmere/silk blend in the rainforest colorway.

This colorway is one of my favorites with its greens and blues mingling together, but with no unpleasant pooling. I’ve already made this ball into a cake, as I’m planning to make another one of this shawl out of it (when I find the time). The finished product is so light and lofty, and only uses one skein of the yarn. I absolutely love the lace pattern, which is a vintage lace edging, and the garter stitch body is simple enough to complement the lace. You can comment on this TSC Artyarns Ravelry thread for a chance to win a pattern from the collection.

    Hi there. I have several skeins of this yarn and am definitely going to use your pattern .i would love to add beads . Would u have any suggestions on where and how to do this in your pattern. Just some sparkle in the lace section would be lovely if its possible :)

      Hi Jeanette,
      Thanks for visiting my blog! I think some beads in the middle purl stitch of the leaves would be really pretty. A size 6/E-bead will fit well on the yarn. Good luck and happy knitting, and I’d love to see a picture of the finished product!
