An extravagant lace shawl inspired
by the wild colors of German
Expressionist paintings, in particular
the work of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. This
inventive lace pattern combines stacked centered quadruple decreases with yarn over increases - and looks a bit like feathers and/or melting paint. Once the decreasing technique
is learned it’s a very easy, readily memorizable knit.
The sample shawl was knit on 5mm/US8 needles with approximately 765yds/700m of Lang Yarns Jawoll Magic 6ply superwash 75% wool/ 25% nylon, colorway 0053 rainbow
Dimensions: approximately 72in/180cm long by 22in/56cm wide.
The pattern is fully written out with an explanation of the stacked decrease technique, and no chart!
