Free pattern Friday: Annis April 18, 2014 – Posted in: Free Pattern Fridays, Project Ideas
We blogged the Annis pattern by Susanna IC once already last spring when we knit it up as a store sample but I fell in love with it all over again this morning when I came across knittimo’s version on Ravelry and decided to share it here again. Although this version is knit with a wool / bamboo blend it gives me the impression of linen and the rustic, casual look provides a pretty juxtaposition to the delicate lace design. This would be stunning knit up with Sparrow from Quince & Co. or Euroflax from Louet. Having made it once already, I can attest to the fact that this really is one of the quickest little shawl projects ever!
From the designer: “The shawlette is knitted in one piece starting at the outside edge of the lace and the narrow curved shape is created by a unique set of short rows. The interesting combination of lace and simple stockinette stitches makes Annis a fun and fast project.”
