Pattern Release: Square Dance Throw

I am pleased to announce the release of a new pattern: the Square Dance Throw!

Like a little-known poem “Square Dance” by L.G. Hertz that delightfully plays with the cadence of the caller and the steps of twirling couples, the lace lines of the Square Dance throw weave elegantly in and out of the corners of each square with a Promenade and a Do Si Do. The end result is a light and airy covering that still packs the warmth and sturdiness of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes.

A great beginner introduction to lace, the two charts use only yarnovers and two-stitch decreases for shaping and let geometry do the rest. The sheen of the yarn is more noticeable with squares knit in the round, since the stitches are perpendicularly oriented.

May your hands quickly find their rhythm for their own knitting dance!
