Hand-painted pottery is a first for me, that is, to be the inspiration for a lace wrap/scarf........... but why not!
Using a more structured lace-weight yarn, Isager Spinni Wool 1, and it is tactility different than anything I have knit with in the past.
The courseness of the yarn, as well as the inspiration from the pottery, both share equally in coming up the feel of this piece.
The design is a fairly easy knitted pattern giving it a mesh-ish feel. It also happens to be completely REVERSIBLE.
However, like all wip lace it doesn't look like much (shown above). So, I did a bit of a "cheaters" block (shown below) to share and give a better idea of what the piece will look like once complete.
More about Isager Spinni Wool 1. Its a sturdy single-ply, lace-weight 100% wool yarn spun in Denmark. Each 50g skein holds 340 yards (310m).
Spinni Wool 1 is currently available in beautifully heathered natural shades. It has been used often for laceweight fine garter stitch designs. I hope to report with certainty, that it will be great for lace motifs too. It appears to have the strength necessary to hold lace fabric while maintaining its dimensional qualities.
On a separate note, I am curious..... if the pattern really requires the high structure of the Spinni Wool 1 yarn OR can any yarn work just as well. Time for a test.....I have decided to test the above pattern in a softer lace weight yarn, in a blend of 50% merino wool, 50% silk just to see what happens.
