Colorway

When I started this design I wasn’t sure how it would end. I love the Checkboard stitch pattern; I made a blanket from it years ago for my grandmother. I think with a variegated yarn it adds so much texture to a piece. While browsing online I came across a vintage knitted lace pattern book from the 1850s and I thought the long lace was such a lovely contrast against the modern lines of the checkerboard.

This Checkerboard Lace Wrap or Poncho is knit as one piece. After the main body is finished it is turned and the lace is knitted onto the bottom edge using knit two together stitches. The final piece forms are rectangle which can be worn as a warp or seamed into an easy to wear poncho.

Sample Colorway: Frosted Berries
