Aime Shawl

Remember back in April when I posted a photo of a shawl I was blocking?

Well, check out the Quince & Company website — the pattern was posted for sale today ($6). Named Aime, after one of the authors of the Estonian lace book the main pattern came from, this shawl takes 5 skeins of Finch (shown in frost #103) and is knitted on size 7 needles for a blocked gauge of 4 stitches/inch. The main pattern repeats over 8 stitches and 16 rows. There is a 5-stitch nupp (rhymes with “soup”) in the center of each motif, which makes a lovely low-relief bobble with an interesting texture.

I had a lot of fun knitting this shawl; I hope you will as well!
