Free Pattern Friday: Spring Leaves June 1, 2012 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas

Spring Leaves, by Katrin Vorbeck, is a rectangular version of the popular Gail (aka Nightsongs) shawl by MaweLucky/Jane Araujo.  This one has been in my queue for ages and I’ve been waiting for the perfect marriage of yarn and pattern to fall into my lap. I’m torn between a fingering versus laceweight version and, because I can’t decide, it has lingered in my queue patiently waiting it’s turn. Perhaps because it’s cool and grey out this morning and I would love to have something beautiful and delicate and lightweight but cozy to wrap around my neck I am turning over the idea of using SweetGeorgia’s CashSilk Lace for this project. Despite the many other projects on my needles, with a little focus this could be finished for similar such mornings in early fall. Now to decide on a colour – Tumbled Stone, Lettuce Wrap, Orchid, or Slate? Stay tuned…
