Lady of Lórien

Details

Simple and elegant, the Lady of Lorien Shawl is a timeless crescent shawl pattern. Among its many desirable qualities is the fact that there is nary a purl stitch in the entire shawl. Slender slipped stitch columns are set against a backdrop of relaxing garter stitch, which perfectly balances cozy plumpness with lightweight wearability, and radiate as the light of the lady’s star phial. A modified old shale lace pattern finishes the piece with ripples subtly reminiscent of the waters of Galadriel’s mirror.
