Laurelie by Lisa Hannes
Laurelie is a cosy triangular shawl designed by Lisa Hannes that combines lovely graphic mosaic knitting, garter stitch and a beautiful lace pattern that echoes the diamond mosaic motif. It is worked in fingering weight yarn in two colours. Big colour blocks, bold mosaic diamonds and elegant lace create a fascinating interplay of colour & texture in this eye catching item! The two-colour diamond motif is created with the mosaic knitting technique, which is easy to knit as it uses slipped stitches and only one colour at a time. Knit on the bias as a sideways triangle with a centred bottom tip makes it a cosy and easy to wear shawl.
Choose two contrasting colours to get the most of this beautiful design.

YARN: The designer says Laurelie was designed for fingering weight yarn in 2 contrasting colours and to allow approx. 330-360m of each colour (total of approx 700m) to get the size of the sample. We think that two skeins of our Yeavering Bell 4ply will be a lovely choice for this pattern.
GAUGE & NEEDLES: Not critical for this project but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size.
Gauge on sample: 23 sts x 32 rows = 10x10cm/4×4“ in garter stitch on smaller needle after blocking. Needles used for sample: 3.5 & 3.75 mm.
