Cob­webs in the Rain

The Knitter - - Cobwebs In The Rain - Bron­agh Miskelly

DE­SIGNED BY Bron­agh Miskelly, this beau­ti­ful wrap is worked from cor­ner to cor­ner us­ing in­creases and de­creases to cre­ate the shape. It is dec­o­rated with un­usual lace pat­terns, in­spired by spi­ders’ webs in the rain, with slant­ing sec­tions of cob­web mo­tifs al­ter­nat­ing with stripes of ‘rain­drop’ lace. Bron­agh has used a Shet­land laceweight wool from Jamieson & Smith for her de­sign; this 2ply yarn comes in a lovely choice of pas­tels, brights and neu­tral colours.
