Knit: Juneberry Triangle

MakingLiz Tubman1 Comment

I have my first finished knit of 2016 to share today!  I started this back at the beginning of December as a Christmas gift for my mom; I didn't finish in time for Christmas but it made a great New Year's present!  This is the Juneberry Triangle by Jared Flood for Brooklyn Tweed.  I often shy away from intricate lace projects because they're often fiddly and not to my taste, but this is an exception.  The pattern includes sizing for both a fingering weight and a worsted weight version and I decided to knit up the worsted weight.  The result is an absolutely beautiful shawl that knits up surprisingly fast with the worsted weight wool on size 10 needles.  The pattern includes bobbles in the last body section and the edging, but I decided to leave them out since there's already so much going on with the lace.   This was also the first time I got to do a knit on edging; it's a fun way to break up the end of the shawl.  Those long rows at the end can get pretty tedious in other patterns, but knitting the edge on separately was a fun change of pace.  The finished shawl is the perfect size for wearing as a scarf or draping over your shoulders.  I highly recommend this one if you're looking for some interesting lace knitting!
