And one for Laura too

The companion piece to Ruth’s shawl is Laura’s leaves.


It’s the same construction, the same size, but a very different design. The lace pattern is inspired by falling leaves, worked on a garter stitch background for some textural contrast.

I made Laura’s shawl from fingering weight yarn, as the weather in Britain is not predictable in September, so it needed to be nice and warm. Then another for myself out of heavy lace weight.


Laura’s Leaves – £4.00

Finished shawl measures 228cm / 89.75in across by 60cm / 23.5in deep.

Mellifera BFL Twist Sock, 100g = 366m / 400yds, 2 skeins.
Posh Yarn Kirsten Heavy Lace, 100g = 503m / 500yds, 2 skeins.
Or substitute with 650m / 710yds lace or fingering weight yarn. I would recommend choosing yarn that will block well and show the texture contrast between stocking stitch and garter stitch..

Tab cast on, reading charts, lace knitting.
