Elemental Changes Shetland Lace

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H53 for stoles in 3 sizes and delicate scarf

The elements of design in this lovely knitted masterpiece are merely traditional Shetland lace motifs: Double Daisy, Fan, Spiderweb. It is the simple change in sequencing the order amongst the repeated motifs that produces the seemingly complex designs of negative and positive space.

Instructions are included for a small delicate scarf and for stoles in 3 widths. All are made in one piece from end to end with edging knitted as you go.

Elemental Changes Shetland Stole Medium width stole shown in Kraemer Yarns Sarah, 60% Suri alpaca 40% domestic Merino, color natural. Small delicate scarf shown in Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace, 70% alpca 30%silk, color 2910.
Number of projects for this pattern that are posted on Ravelry

Stitch instructions are both charted and written out. Recommended for experienced lace knitters and confident intermediates only. The small scarf can be used as a practice piece before attempting the larger projects.

4 sizes: Small delicate scarf through extra-wide stole: 7" x 42" through 25" x 78". Allow 185 - 1125 yards of lace weight yarn. 20 stitches and 25 rows per 4 inches finished blocked gauge over center section stitch patterns; size US 5 /3.75 mm needles suggested.

Note: All rows are patterned lace; there are no 'rest' rows. The scarf and shawl are reversible with no right side/wrong side. Challenging, but lovely!
