Lareina

IMG_6851 Lareina is finally live! I swear life has been conspiring against me - but I am getting things back under control. Lareina is the 2nd of the Perfectly Placed shawls - Loradee was the first. Perfectly Placed is a collection of striped shawls in Yellowstone - an 80/20 wool/silk by Stitch Sprouts. Yellowstone is a sport-weight yarn with a generous 285 yards per skein. And it's buttery soft!

Lareina begins with a lovely lace border - and then you pick up stitches to work the Latvian braid. Once you work the braid and the body set-up the body is a simple 6 row repeat. And it goes fast, because your rows get shorter and shorter. I love that kind of fast!

The wool/silk blend makes for a really sumptuous next to the skin soft wrap that works in any season. The slip stitch patterning mimics a lovely plaid and the creamsicle colors make this a dreamy project. What colors of Yellowstone would you work this shawl up in?
