Modification Monday: Lothlorien



Original Patterns: Echo Flower Shawl and Annis

Knitter Extraordinaire: elven (Ravelry ID, blog)

Mods: Changed the gauges from lace/fingering to worsted, and used the crescent shape of the Annis shawl and the last two charts for the Echo Flowers Shawl border. Project page can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: I was totally blown away when I saw this one. I adore how lace looks when its worked in heavier weights like this worsted, it looks so luscious.  The edging for the Echo Flower Shawl is iconic amoungst us knitters for a reason- it's flat-out gorgeous, in any weight of yarn. Combining it with the easy wearability and simple stockinette of the Annis shape was very clever,  I wish I had thought of it. I'm in love!
