The Clothilde pattern is now available! Thanks so much to my wonderful test knitters, Kate, Christine, Susanna, Bethany, Cyn, and Ellen, who got the job done in record time and gave me fabulous input to boot! They are, to a woman, awesometastic.
Clothilde (pronounced kloh-TEELD) is a lace shawl knit in one piece from the center top outward. Utilizing traditional gull wing lace that flares into spear points at the edge, Clothilde is a good project for the intermediate lace knitter. With both written instructions and charts, knitters should be able to find their most comfortable way of following the pattern. The pattern can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of either the Gull Wing or the Spearhead lace.
