The first pattern release for 2014. Its a reversible mesh lace pattern written in three different widths as a scarf to a wide wrap. I call it Copenhagen and it came from an inspiration of some hand-painted pottery I adore.
Originally, I thought it needed a courser yarn to stand up to the mesh pattern and I chose Isager Spinni Wool 1, both for that reason and although perhaps hokey...... its yarn from Denmark being used for my Danish hand-painted pottery inspiration. Hokey personified....I know, I know!
Spinni Wool 1 worked very well, even though it was course, it did get somewaht softer as I worked with it. I would definitely use it again. As an experiment, I started a second wrap in a super soft yarn to see if the mesh design would hold up.
Pictured above, is the Juniper Moon Farm yarn, Findley, a laceweight yarn that is 50% merino, 50% silk and is very soft. Much to my surprise and delight, it took to the pattern beautifully and held the blocking. That's what I call a win win!
Copenhagen Reversible Mesh Lace Wrap and Scarf pattern is available on Ravelry.com. I have included a Blocking Tutorial with this pattern. The pattern is relatively easy to knit and block, but the pattern comes to life with the blocking.
