TIDAL WAVE a lace wrap

I released a new pattern!
 
a lace wrap
 
 
 
 
 
My lovely friend Ryan came over to model my new pattern for me.
Since the wrap is made of 100% alpaca yarn I thought the alpacas should be included in the photo shoot.


I designed the scarf using a pattern made up of knits, purls, yarn overs and a few purl togethers.
I wanted a lace pattern that wasn't a very open lace. I wanted it to be able to hang over my shoulders and cover me up at times.  I didn't want it to be too transparent, but I'm sure if you wanted to make this on larger needles it would give you a much more open lace feel.


Ono was very interested in the photo shoot, but didn't think getting too close to the model
was a very good idea.
 
 

The babies might not have wanted to get too close, but the big girls were very interested and made sure to check out both Ryan and the wrap.

Finally one of the kids came around and wanted to find out more about the model.
Do you see how comfy the wrap looks just draped over her shoulders? That is how I like to wear it.

 
Arrow wasn't shy about getting his picture taken.
 
 
 We went over to see Maggie. She is always up to have her picture taken.
 
 
Ryan is also a photographer and a picture she took of Maggie was used for the cover of
our local paper. It was such a fun picture I thought I had to get a picture of the two of
them together.

 

 
So whether you want to wear the Tidal Wave as a wrap, scarf, bundled around your neck or even over your lap it is warm and comfy and I really enjoyed knitting it.
 
The yarn I used was Shibui baby alpaca dk.
The color I used was Mineral.  I had made a shawl with this same color a while back and it is my most worn hand knit. It goes with everything. Which I love.
 
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's yarn choices for this knit!

yay you released the pattern! i love leaf motifs and yours is so unique.

i have 1,000 yards of Miss Babs Tarte - Merino, Tencel and Nylon. Do you think it would be a good fit for this design? It's in the colorway pewter and i think i'd get a lot of wear out of this wrap!

Such a beautiful pattern! I had to start it very late last night since I had the yarn in my stash! Enjoying every stitch...it flows so smoothly. We have the next Anne Hanson here at the Jersey Shore!
