Starlight Lace Pattern

This pattern is an adaptation of of the Starlight Lace Pattern from Ms. Barbara Walker's classic book, "A Second Treasurey of Knitting Patterns." This is a very fine lace that lends itself very well for allovers that can be used in shawls and veils. While you can use any lace weight yarn in order to obtain beautiful results, our adaptation was made using our Kid Mohair Silk in color Natural White, on a US Size 3 needle to add openness to the work given the nature of Kid Mohair Silk. While feathery-light, the drape is absolutely lovely.

Shetland Print O'the Wave or Trailing Leaf

This pattern is one of the classic Shetland lace patterns, and perhaps one of the most graceful, known as Print O’ the Wave or Trailing Leaf. It is adequate for skirts, shawls, veils, fine scarves, heirloom blankets, and more. Use also for inserts for dressy skirts and blouses. If you use circular knitting needles, you can construct a beautiful skirt. The skirt could be straight if you only use this lace stitch, but you can make other skirt styles if you keep center lace panels in the front and back, and use stockinet stitch for the sides to do increases/decreases as necessary. The lace sample has a gauge of 61 stitches, yielding 13 inches wide by 7 1/4 inches long. Keep in mind that when knitting lace how you block is crucial -- some people prefer a more open look.

Shetland Feather and Fan Lace

A Shetland lace knit in US 0, single strand. This pattern is adequate for fine scarves, heirloom blankets, curtains. Wedding veils also come to mind. Use also for inserts for dressy skirts and blowses. If you use circular knitting needles, you can construct a beautiful skirt. The skirt could be straight if you only use this lace stitch, but you can make other skirt styles if you keep center lace panels in the front and back, and use stockingette stich for the sides to do increases/decreases as necessary. The lace sample has a gauge of 64 stitches, yielding 10 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches long.

 

Capelet

This pattern works up very quickly using lace bias openwork.  The pattern was inspired by an Uma Thurman top shown on the cover of a recent magazine, in a very similar tone of pale-grey.  Can be used for day-wear, or as shown in the photo, to enhance evening-wear.  The triangular shape has a slimming effect on the figure.  For this capelet, we used JaggerSpun Zephyr DK Weight Wool-Silk yarn in Pewter, knit with Tilli Tomas Pure and Simple Silk in Atmosphere to add the right amount of “sheen.”  We used the JaggerSpun Zephyr DK Weight yarn with the Tilli Tomas Rock Star in Atmosphere for the shoulders and edgings, as the beads on  the Rock Star yarn added a very nice beaded effect.  The capelet was knit using US size 9 needles, 2 skeins of Tilli Tomas Pure and Simple Silk in Atmosphere, One skein of Tilli Tomas Rock Star in Atmosphere, and approximately 8 ounces of the JaggerSpun Zephyr DK Weight Wool-Silk Yarn in Pewter.

 

Shetland Fern Lace

A Shetland lace knit in US Size 3 needles and our 100% Mongolian 2-Ply Cashmere, single strand. This pattern is an early ninteenth-century lace known as “Fern Lace.” It is adequate for year-round fine scarves, skirts, shawls, curtains, it is so versatile. You can use this pattern also for inserts for dressy skirts and blowses. There are two versions of this lace pattern: one is a "straight" version in which the purl stitches delimiting the "ferns" are "straight." The one below shows the purl-strip stitches "waving."
