Fir Cone Lace Shawl & Scarf by Churchmouse Yarns

Our rectangular shawl and scarf begin with sideways sawtooth garter-stitch edgings. The length is then knitted in a classic Fir Cone eyelet pattern that’s lacy enough to look pretty and opaque enough to be cozy. Designer Becky ffitch, our lace teacher, was inspired by traditional Shetland lace patterns found in historic stitch dictionaries. We think this is the definition of romantic!

While we were knitting the traditional Shetland edgings for our wrap and scarf, it really got our creative juices flowing. Where else, we wondered, could you use this sweet little strip of knitted lace? Our pattern includes suggestions for experimenting with yarn weights to edge various garments, accessories, all sorts of things. Once you start thinking about edgings, we know you’ll see opportunities for pretty Shetland edgings everywhere you look!
