Pattern Details

I created this shawl for a mystery knit along in the 2012 Arctic Lace Luxury Yarn Club. I purchased the yarn, A Tree Hugger’s Wife Royal Silk from the dyer, Melissa Highfill, when I was at Seaside Yarns in Juneau, Alaska, on a real knitting cruise in 2012. The colorway is called “glacier.” With such an arctic pedigree, there was no way I could design something that was not inspired by ice and snow. I designed this one step at a time, the way knitters would experience it as they worked from the mystery pattern. I’ve left the pattern in the format of a knit along, so you’ll find tips for putting in lifelines, measuring the piece as you go along, and so forth. Size: 42" (107 cm) diameter, blocked Gauge: 28 sts and 32 rows = 4" (10 cm) over St st worked in the round, blocked

Recommended with this pattern

  • Approx 565 yds/517m lace weight silk or silk blend Sample shown in: A Tree Hugger’s Wife Royal Silk (100% silk, 565 yds/517m per 115 g skein), 1 skein in colorway Glacier
  • Set of 5 size 3 (3.25mm) dpns and 16-inch and 24-inch long circulars
  • Can you make this with magic loop or 2 circs? Yes. But I think it would be much easier to get started with dpns and switch to a circular after you have some stitches on the needles. I've never tried magic loop or 2 circs starting with so few sts.
