Lovely in Lace Knitting Pattern: Design Inspiration
The Lovely in Lace Wrap knitting pattern designed by Snickerdoodle Knits (that's me!) is now available for purchase! (Learn more & purchase the pattern here.) This design was originally created for the Tippy Tree Yarns Audrey Hepburn advent shawl MKAL of December 2020. Tiffany, the dyer behind Tippy Tree Yarns, asked me to design a rectangular shawl that represented Audrey Hepburn, and gave me three adjectives: “classy, elegant, and understated.” I felt like the only path for this design was to create something with simple lace motifs, and of course, the feather and fan stitch motif had to be incorporated.
(Also: Tiffany is already planning doing more "icon" advent MKALs... it'll be a semi-annual July and December thing, and I'll definitely be designing the next one ~ it's currently available for purchase in her shop here!

Designing the Lovely in Lace Wrap was a new - and fun - challenge for me as a knitwear designer. Tiffany reached out and asked if I would design a rectangular wrap for her four mini-skein advent calendar. I had a lot on my plate, and time was tight with a capital T, but it was an opportunity I didn’t want to let slip.
