Minarets and Lace

Is finally ready and available for download from Ravelry.

A top-down crescent shaped shawl knit in lace weight yarn and a celebration of my favourite Estonian stitches. (no, I can't stay away from them!) The stitch motifs include nupps, lace flowers, gathered stitches and the very pretty Lily of the Valley motif. The combination of motifs results in the emergence of unexpected shapes - archways and minarets - and ends with a dramatic nupp encrusted lace edging. Knitting this shawl is pure Estonian lace knitting joy, but in a modern crescent shape.
A number of projects have already been finished and posted on Ravelry, you should check out the beauties my testers produced!
