A little more than a year ago, I started thinking about more patterns that feature the same lace pattern that is used in Holden. I wrote down a bunch of ideas, started thinking about yarn choices and color schemes, and made a whole bunch of notes in my notebook. The first pattern to come from that bit of brainstorming is Brunswick.
Brunswick uses the lace pattern from Holden throughout the shawl. If you ever wanted a Holden that was all lace, then this is your pattern.
As you can see from the picture above, the lace has picot hems (I LOVE picots!) interspersed throughout the lace, much like what you see in my Star House Cowl pattern from Interweave Knits Spring 2014 issue. The picot hems are three dimensional and pop out from the lace. They’re a nice break from all that lace too. If you don’t want to add the picot hems, don’t worry. The pattern tells you how to omit them if you just want the lace.
Brunswick is available now on Ravelry for $6.00.
700 yards (640 m) lace weight yarn.
US 4 (3.5 mm), 40 inch or longer circular needle, or size needed to achieve gauge.
Yarn needle, waste yarn.
53.5 x 24.5 inches (136 x 62 cm)
basic knitting skills, knit two together decrease, slip slip knit decrease, yarn over increase.
Just like most of my patterns, the pattern has both written and charted instructions and has been professionally tech edited. The pattern also includes full instructions on how to work the picot hems.
If you’re wondering how the name Brunswick relates to Holden, Holden Beach, North Carolina, is in Brunswick County.
