Navy Blue Shawlette – Burn Shawlette

I recently knitted my first lace shawlette – well, it’s really a lace and cable shawlette. I used an Ice Yarns Cashmere Silk DK weight yarn (sorry, it’s discontinued) in a lovely navy. It was gorgeously soft and easy to work with – but some of the colour did come out when I washed it – both times.

I actually knitted this twice as the first time, the cast on row was too tight to block properly, while the cast off was too loose. The 2nd time they were more evenly knitted and it blocked out much better.

I haven’t yet decided whether I’m going to keep it or sell it, but I’ll let you know! The pattern is well-written and easy to follow, I used the chart to knit the cable & lace section. I will definitely make this one again!

You can find the pattern on Ravelry – Burn

    1. Hi Shirley –

      I got those mats at Aldi – they are exercise mats. When I replace them, I will get some that don’t have holes in them, they always seem to end up where I need to pin!
