(Re) introducing Just Enough Lace

This is my Just Enough Lace shawl. I designed it for the Knit Picks Delicate Details Collection two years ago, and now it’s available on Ravelry, too.

Just Enough Lace is an asymmetric triangle knit on the bias. It features a leafy edging along one edge, and a stockinette body with occasional bands of eyelet lace. The leafy edging is a perfect place to add beads for sparkle and drape.

The pattern is easily adjustable to the yardage you have. It is written for 150g/660 yards of Knit Picks Gloss Fingering, but you can make it longer or shorter as you wish. You’re the boss of your knitting!

I wish I had the original Blackberry version of this shawl; I had beads on the edge. I gave it to mom-in-law for her birthday way back when, and somehow I never took a proper FO pic! But here’s the edging.

To celebrate the re-launch of this shawl, I’m offering it at 10% off the Ravelry price through July 8, 2020, no coupon code needed. Ravelry link here. (As always, newsletter subscribers get a bigger discount; subscribe to my newsletter here.)

If you’re having trouble working with Ravelry while they work through their site re-vamp, message me and I can send you an invoice for direct payment and then email you the pattern. It takes a little longer that way, though; I’m not automated!

The pattern is also available through Knit Picks, that link is here.

PS: I had a really fun time doing a Facebook Live Zoom interview with Hannah from Knit Picks last week. You can watch the replay through Facebook with this link here. Not a Facebook user? It will eventually be posted on YouTube, and I’ll post that link when it’s ready. Not yet!

Happy knitting!

  1. Awesome! I can only crochet but not knit

    Hi! What a lovely shawl! I have a question about the construction – is the lace edge knit at the same time as the body of the shawl, or do you go back and pick up edge stitches, and then knit the edge on?
    Thank you so much!

    • Hi, LIn, The lace edge is knit at the same time as the body, no picking up afterwards. Which is really nice, because you won’t accidentally run out of yarn before finishing the lace edge. This is a pretty relaxing knit! Cheers, Michele
