Test Knit – Flapping of Angels Wings

 

I have been lucky to test knit another of Stella Egidi’s (aka \Moody Knitter Designs) patterns.  The latest was Flapping of Angels’ Wings link: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flapping-of-angels-wings.

Stella has a great eye for details that turn a simple knit into a sublime piece of work.  This shawl has a garter stitch body with a lace border that undulates along one edge gently increasing in size as the work progresses.  Initially I really struggled with the lace repeat on this shawl but once I got my head around it I couldn’t stop.

The yarn used Drops Baby Alpaca and Silk and has a wonderful drape when knit up – I used 6 balls – 300grms.   I added an extra lace repeat and the result is a generous sized shawl.   Blocking was a 3 yoga mat job that took quite a while but well worth the effort.
