The Holden Shawlette, by Mindy Wilkes, is our pick for this week’s free pattern highlight. This lovely project is at once simple and elegant and is a perfect choice for first time and experienced lace knitters alike.  The pattern includes both written and charted instructions and Mindy has done a great job of providing clear pattern notes to minimize any possible confusion.  I’ve just cast this on in Handmaiden’s Sea Silk in Saltspray, an exquisite silvery-blue, and I am enthralled – both by the yarn itself (I always love knitting with Sea Silk) and the depth and sheen of the colour. Knitting bliss.
