Lovely in Lace Wrap Knitting Pattern: Yarn Recommendations

Updated: Jan 16, 2021

Are you in love with the Lovely in Lace Wrap knitting pattern but not sure what yarn to use? Continue reading for color recommendations using Tippy Tree Yarns (the yarn that I used), affordable yarn suggestions, and a list of resources to search for other yarns that will work for the pattern!

A fun, engaging, lacy pattern, the Lovely in Lace Wrap is a beautiful and elegant accessory to wear when you're feeling just a touch fancy. The design uses three simple lace motifs that are repeated throughout the pattern while alternating between four yarn colors.

Because this wrap was originally designed for the Tippy Tree Yarns Audrey Hepburn Advent MKAL, I used the Tippy Tree Yarns Audrey Hepburn Advent MKAL yarns for December 2020 ~ the colors were called Audrey Grace, Audrey Beauty, Audrey Glam, and Audrey Style. They were so pretty!

But, of course, they were part of the special event and are not available for purchase. The wrap will look great in most solid, tonal, and lightly speckled yarns. The main thing to remember when selecting your yarn is that the darker and/or the busier the yarn is, the more it will hide the lace.

Tippy Tree Yarns Colors

Tippy Tree Yarns carries a beautiful array of colors, many of which would work together well for the Lovely in Lace Wrap.

The pattern is easy to customize in the color order and the number of colors you wish to use. The shawl was designed with 4 fingering weight mini skeins, but you may wish to use just 2 full skeins of fingering weight instead. So, I've included some 4-color combinations that I think will look great, and I think that almost any 2 colors that I put next to each other would work well for a 2-color version. I've ordered them in the direction I would choose for the shawl (Color 1, Color 2, Color 3, and then Color 4), but this could also be flipped (Color 4, Color 3, Color 2, and then Color 1).
