Juniper


Juniper is the name of a small shawl pattern from Jen Lucas' book, Sock-Yarn Shawls II. I love how this shawl looks! I used sock yarn from Knitpicks. It only took a couple of weeks for me to make. What a fun project!


Here's a close up of the lace edge. The shawl is started by casting on 349 stitches. I was so sure I was going to miscount them! I had to keep checking myself. The lace pattern becomes a gorgeous scallop across the edge of the shawl. Once the lace knitting is complete, short rows are knit to create the crescent shape. It actually sounds more difficult than it sounds. This shawl was a pleasure to knit.


I can't wait to work on another shawl from this book. There are so many beautiful patterns to knit. I love Jen's patterns! I own both books she's written. They're wonderful!
