Ashton is a lovely shawlette that is offered by Dee O-Keefe as a comprehensive, charted pattern/tutorial designed specifically for knitters who wish to venture into knitting lace for the first time. And, while it’s an excellent project for beginners, it’s also a very enjoyable and satisfying one for more experienced knitters. The pattern breaks down lace into clear components and clearly explains how to read charts, upsize and recalculate yardage requirements, do a stretchy bind-off, and how to block.
The Tern yarn from Quince & Co yarn was a dream to work and gives a beautiful structure to the finished piece. Elegant, yet slightly rustic, this will wear extremely well and last forever!
