It’s no secret that I love shawls, especially those knit out of fingering weight yarn. When I received word that Anzula had a new fingering weight cashmere yarn, I had to check it out for myself.
When those three lovely skeins of Serenity ended up on my doorstep, I knew that I had to make a shawl that could easily use as much of that luscious yarn as possible. A sideways-knit shawl seemed to the way to go – without much effort you can increase the shawl until you’ve used half the yarn, and then decrease the shawl to a point. Pax was born.
Pax starts with just a few stitches and is worked sideways, slowly increasing to form the triangle shape of the shawl. The geometric lace pattern is interesting to both look at as well as knit – I couldn’t put this shawl down! Once I reached the center, I worked the mirror image of the lace while decreasing on the second half of the shawl. The small lace border is worked as you go, giving Pax a delicate touch.
