This past Friday Knit Picks highlighted one of my designs as their Friday Freebie. The Liana Shawlette is named after woody vines found in the tropics. The lace in the edging mimics these vines as the grow throughout the forest.
It combines a self striping yarn for the body (Knit Picks Chroma in Prism) with a solid (and in this case sparkly) yarn for the edging (Knit Picks Glimmer in Potion).
It would look great with any variegated main color for the stockinette body and a solid contrast color for the lacy edge.
It is a winged shawlette which means that it will stay on the shoulders and wraps nicely around the neck for warmth. The pattern can be downloaded for free online here.
And those of us that don't live in the tropics need all of the warmth we can get,
