    Garthenor Number 1 Projects

    Unfolding Shawl

    Unfolding by Sari Nordlund beautifully combines twisted ribbing, geometric lace, elongated garter stitch and eyelets into a staple shawl. The triangular shawl is knit from the bottom up, i.e. you start with the wide side and decrease your way to the tip. This way, all the hard work (i.e. the longer rows) is done at the beginning, and the rows become shorter and quicker as the shawl grows!

    Petite Laine Nuria

    Nuria by HerbePlusVerte is a light and very soft sweater made with a lace Shetland yarn and a lace mohair and silk strand. The fabric is pretty rustic and the delightfull lace pattern is very feminin. Many details make this knit a real pleasure to work.
