Lobelia Shawl and Shawlette

I’ve fallen down the gradient yarn rabbit hole. The Lobelia Shawl and Shawlette make the most of my new obsession.

This is Lobelia in KnitCircus Thrilling, Starry Night. I used a 150g skein and loved every inch of it.

The crescent is shaped with simple short rows. No wrapping at the turns is required.

But what if you only have a standard 100g/400 yard skein? This is Lobelia in KnitCircus Greatest of Ease, Come What May, 400 yards. Not quite as big, but very lovely.

The pattern offers both sizes, Gauge is 24 stitches per 4 inches in stockinette stitch; I used a US size 4 needle. Charts and line by line instructions for the lace pattern are included.

Not into gradients? Lobelia also looks great in a semi-solid color.
