Introducing my latest pattern, Trailing Ivy!
It is funny how some designs are such a struggle from conception to finished item and some fall together effortlessly. Trailing Ivy fortunately was one of the latter. The finished shawl looks quite a bit like my original sketch and seemed to just knit itself.
I have fond memories of the design process on this one and I am absolutely thrilled by how it turned out.
In this shawl, 3 trailing ivy motifs grow out from the increases on the body and into the pleats. The vines are placed in such a way that when the shawl is worn, one falls in the center of the back and the others gracefully cascade down the length of each arm.
Originally this design was released as part of Miss Babs 2015 Armchair Traveling Knitting Tour and was knit out of the beautiful Kunlun yarn. The version shown above was knit up in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Yaksi which was also a wonderful choice.
