Our first Surprise pattern is the magnificently colorful, and colorfully magnificent Lady Lismore shawl. I love how utterly striking it is in this color combo. It’s a clever use of dropped and textural stitch patterns: entirely different from the usual lace shawl – both casual and more delicate at the same time.
The designer, Elanor King, showed us photos of her original version of it, ina totally different but equally fantastic color combo: blue and shocking pink.
She provides details on the colour choices and yarns for both versions on her blog.
In addition, Elanor is running a KAL, with prizes! It starts today, so hopefully you’ll have something in your stash to get started. Or go shopping tonight, after work.
