Ripple Lake

Ripple Lake is a gorgeous cardigan adorned with the most beautiful textured lace patterns. 

It has an open front and short sleeves, which make it perfect for transitioning into Spring or into Autumn. The front is slightly shorter than the back, for a modern and flattering fit. It’s the perfect cardigan to wear over dresses, blouses and skirts… and also (of course) a plain t-shirt and jeans ❤️

The construction is so much fun, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! It is worked in two halves (left and right) that grow sideways and meet at the centre back creating a stunning box pleat (there’s a video tutorial for that part of the pattern). 
I have included schematics throughout the pattern to help you identify which part you are working on. 
I am so proud of this one!

Joji’s new pattern is beautiful - you can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.

The cardigan is knit in fingering weight yarn so you have many, many options.

Diana stopped by today with my Easy Eyelet Scarf. She used tosh merino light and Shibui Silk Cloud.

In possibly the simplest lace pattern that exists (it’s a one-row repeat!), we’ve reinterpreted this wrap in so many yarns over the years. With the option to seam it into an easy poncho for a breezy, multi-season layer, it’s quick to knit—it’s got more holes than yarn!

We’ve knit this Easy Eyelet Wrap in a combination of Shibui Silk Cloud and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light. Perfectly paired with the mohair fuzz of lace-weight Silk CloudTosh Merino Light’s tonal washes of complementary, hand-dyed color gain a glowing halo. Together, these yarns have the soft, lightweight warmth we love season after season!

We’ve resized our Easy Eyelet Wrap with a free adaptation to make sure we took full advantage of both Tosh Merino Light and Silk Cloud’s yardage. We kept the scarf narrow to gain a lavish length! And with the extra yardage of Tosh Merino Light, we added an abundance of fringe.

You can purchase the pattern and download the adaptation here. 

The shawl is soft and drapey. I can’t wait to wear it.

Sarah has pulled out her Log Cabin Afghan and it looks great. She has one row to attach. Sarah chose a purple border and I like it. I know you are saying ‘of course she likes it’. I’m pretty stuck on a black border for the afghan but the purple does look good. I might change my mind.
