Curvette combines simple stitches with yarn over eyelets to unveil an easy to knit fabric with divine drape. Choose four colors of fingering weight wool as the main garter stitch colors and accent them with one shade of lace weight mohair silk. The fluffy mohair adds a delicate and lightweight touch to the fabric. A subtle wavy border finishes the semi-circular shape with a flourish. Instructions include video tutorials showing you how to work the I-cord cast on and how to finish the I-cord corner at the end of the project. This pattern is suitable for adventurous beginners as well as seasoned knitters of Westknits shawls.
