Introducing the newest pattern from the Lovelyarns compendium: Evening in Venice. Venice is a gorgeous, bulky, sparkly alpaca blend from Hand Painted Knitting Yarns which just came in a few weeks ago, and it could not be more luscious! Worked up on a US size 15 needle, it is lofty and fluffy and elegant, and this project only takes one skein.
It’s an easy one, too: just knit stitches and yarn overs, with a picot bind off to finish the edge. The pattern is FREE with a purchase of the yarn (or of any yarn in the store, really), and the yarn comes in some really lovely colors.
It’s just the right size. I’m wearing it here as a shawl, like I would over a dress for an evening out, but it’s also really nice as a kerchief, snuggled up against my neck. I think that’s the alpaca talking. Yummos.
You can find the pattern placeholder on Ravelry here, and if you knit a version don’t forget to leave us a comment! We’d love to see pictures!
