I had a lot of fun designing Silver Spoon and it’s name comes from the edging, which reminds me of the delicate scrollwork detailing on you guessed it, Silver Spoons. The shawl is knit from the center neck down to the wide edge of the shawl, and The Silver Spoon One Skein Shawl has a knit-on border which means it’s not necessary to bind off 185+ stitches at once! The bold knit-on edging is worked back and forth over 19 stitches and a k2tog with the main body stitches every other row eliminates the large bind off stitch by stitch.
I’m a huge fan of Tilli Tomas Artisan Sock. It says merino but feels like cashmere and holds up extremely well. My Flambe sample has literally traveled tens of thousands of miles cross country and back multiple times and looks great. After all that handling you can hit it with a sweater shaver but chances are that your shawls aren’t going to see the mileage and hands that mine do when traveling with me to trunk shows all over the US.
This quick-to-knit triangle lace shawlette is simple and elegant with its lovely, knit-on lace edging.
