Lacy Rib Shawl
A slubby yarn, gives this lacy rib shawl with cowl and wrist warmers an exciting uneven texture. The now discontinued Colina from Thomas Kvist Yarns is a mixture of cotton and linen. A reversible lace pattern by Lynne Barr, was perfect for this shawl which can be buttoned into a shrug with a cowl as a collar and wrist warmers in a matching rib.
The shrug is knitted flat as a rectangular shawl. Buttons are attached at each end with holes in the lace pattern used as buttonholes so that it can be buttoned into a shrug. The cowl and the wrist warmers are knitted in the round. All can easily be adjusted by adding or removing pattern repeats as desired.
