The beauty of lace patterns is that they always look elaborate - even a relatively simple repeat can build into a fabric packed with stunning detail. You could make Sarah Hatton's beautiful stole the focus of your outfit by wearing it over a monotone vest, or use it as a muted contrast to a statement dress. It would also make a great piece for taking your work clothes from day to evening.Rowan's Lenpur™ Linen yarn is made from a mix of Lenpur™ viscose and linen, a cool blend that's just right for this time of year. Sarah has chosen Cloud Grey for her shawl, but this yarn is available in other flattering neutrals and vibrant, eye-catching shades. “I thought the Lenpur™ Linen was the perfect yarn for a shawl as it has a beautiful drape and sheen.” says Sarah. With no shaping required, this project would be an ideal project if you're familiar with basic lace patterns and want to try something that's a bit - but not too much! - of a challenge. Make the knit more manageable by using a pattern marker to keep track of the rows as you work them.
