Over on the Fyberspates group on Ravelry is a lovely thread that invites designers to showcase their latest designs in Fyberspates yarn. It's full on inspiration and if you haven't joined the group yet, do come over and take a look. There is so much to read and chat about!

This pattern by Asa Tricosa was shared recently and it is absolutely stunning. The pattern is called 'Bakau' and is a simple and stylish top-down semi-circular shawl. We love the fact that it is lacy but not fussy as it transitions from stocking stitch to lacy edging all in single rows.

The sample shown here is worked in Faery Wings 4ply, a  67% Silk, 23% Mohair, 10% Nylon blend that means a soft handle with a delicate halo and added strength. The colourway shown is 'Every Cloud', a delicate grey tone. There are two sizes to choose from offered with the pattern: a smaller shawlette and a more generous shawl. It can be worked in laceweight to sportweight yarns making it perfect for showing off your hand-dyed treasures.

For lots of yarn options, please visit the shop and stop by the group to let us know what you chose to use if you're working on this shawl!
