Knitting Notions is a family owned and operated business. We opened in 2005 with our first product, our handmade Yarn Swifts, and have added to our product line as our business grew. We now produce a large line of handmade wood and leather products as well as hand dyed merino wool yarns. 99% of the products that we sell are made by us or another American small business.
Holbrook is a top-down, semi-circular shawl with a beautiful, wide knitted-on lace border. I just love the look of knitted-on borders—they add a touch of elegance and drama that is very intriguing. This border has lace patterning on both sides, but is easy to memorize and fun to knit.
This is an excellent pattern for those of you new to knitted-on borders or knitted lace with patterning on both sides. The pattern includes clear instructions on how to work a knitted-on border; large, easy-to-read charts as well as written instructions; and detailed blocking notes. I think you may find that Holbrook is a lot easier to knit than it looks!
The shawl body consists of three triangles: a larger triangle in the middle section composed of a lovely old lace pattern known as English Mesh Lace and side triangles that are knitted in classic stockinette for a stunning design contrast. As you wrap Holbrook around your shoulders, the stockinette stitching peeps through the lace sections, providing visual interest no matter how the shawl is worn.
Holbrook is shown in fingering weight but the design is also suitable for lace weight. A solid or tonal yarn is highly recommended to showcase the intricacy of the border design.
