Feamainn Shawl – Final IYC 2015 pattern

Well the final pattern of the Irish Yarn Club has been released – Feamainn Shawl. This was a pleasure to knit, the colours made me so happy :-)

(Club can still be purchased pattern only).

I am not usually a big lace weight knitter, when it’s very fine I find that my small finger starts cramping from holding the tension in the yarn. However for the Yarn Club I wanted to find a yarn with more yardage for a larger project and lace was the only way to do that. The Hedgehog Fibres Silk/Merino lace was a little heavier as laceweight goes. This make a big difference to me, it felt very comfortable to work with, no finger cramping!

The colours of the yarn swim between blues and greens and are rich and vibrant. It felt like a deep rich sea colour so the lace pattern I used has echoes of waves and seaweed. It starts at the top with a garter stitch tab, working down in a standard triangular lace shape but with a lace spine that runs the full length. It flows from st st into linear lace and finishing with a wider lace edging.

If you only want a single pattern from the Yarn Club then next month they will be released individually.
