Waiting For Rain by Sylvia McFadden

Waiting for Rain by Sylvia McFadden

Waiting for Rain is a lovely, beautiful garter and lace crescent shawl that uses an unusual short row lace technique.  It fits perfectly over your shoulders and drapes in a way which is very pleasing to the eye. It’s worked top down with lacey increases. The pattern shows the single colour version, but the Ravelry download includes a ‘Hacking your Waiting for Rain shawl’ PDF.  This includes instructions for how to do stripes, how to move or add lace panels, make lace panels larger, and how to do the fancy knit-on cast-off shown in the two colour version.

We used a 100g hank of Whitbarrow Limestone, Heron and Olive Lime to knit this three colour version.  To knit it in one or two colours you will need two 100g hanks.  Whitbarrow is our Fingering weight blend of baby alpaca, superfine Falklands Merino wool and Mulberry silk and is an ideal yarn in which to knit a supersoft, luxurious shawl.   To see all the colours available, click here.
