Dulcavina

I've been lucky enough to test knit Laura's latest stole pattern - Dulcavina.


Isn't it lovely?


It measured 76" x 24" and took just under three hanks of Malabrigo Laceweight yarn in colour Verde Esperanze ( with about 25gms over) on 3.75mm needles. It's the first time I've used this yarn but it won't be the last. It's such a beautifully soft merino wool I wouldn't have believed anything that wasn't Cashmere could be so soft. I bought mine from Stashyarns in London.


The stole is made of a travelling vine pattern is in the centre with vine lace zig-zag at either end then a deep border all around.



And part of the bottom edge with one of the pretty corners





Has that wet your appetite?

Just beautiful! And that's one Malabrigo colorway I had never heard of before . . it's lovely. Thanks for the opinion on that too. I just got some Malabrigo laceweight in a different one . . dusty olive. I was wondering how it knit up.

It's beautiful, Kathryn - I particularly like the colour!

I've just looked at Laura's 2-colour version - not quite so sure about that one, but it's interesting!

I only hope mine turns out half as beautiful as yours. The colorway you chose was my 2nd choice. Wouldn't that have been funny if we'd knit the same one?

It's just stunning!

Well that's just gone on my Ravelry wish list. It's gorgeous and has also made me want to traipse down to Stash :) Your knitting is just lovely.
