The Wrap Group -- May/June #5

Hi Wrappers!

We are halfway through our Feather & Fan Fantasy, so it's time for a bonus pattern. This time, I just can't resist Citron by Hilary Smith Callis on knitty. It's a semi-circular shawlette or can be made larger by adding more pattern repeats.

The pattern calls for a lace weight yarn, but there are some beautiful samples on Ravelry using fingering weight yarn. I'm thinking Frog Tree Alpaca Fingering, Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Regia Hand-Dye Effect, Noro Kureyon Sock, Crystal Palace Mini Mochi, or Ella Rae Lace Merino. Of for Lace weight you could go with Cascade Alpaca Lace or Classic Elite Silky Alpaca Lace.

Adjust your needle size accordingly. As always, I suggest you buy one skein more yarn than specified, especially since several people have repoarted running short before finishing the bind off. You might also want to do the ruffle in garter stitch if you're just tired of purling by that time.

Off to dig into my stash...

Wrap On!
