I originally designed Hecate for the Shakespeare in Lace October shipment. This is the second time I've designed for this Wooly Wonka club, and I like working with Anne and her yarns so much I've signed on for a third year - I'll be creating a sock design this time. I'm also collaborating with Anne on a special project for April, which happens to coincide with a certain birthday-ending-in-zero of mine.
Now let's get back to Hecate. This two color triangular shawl is worked from the center back down. A simple, single color lace pattern gives way to gently curving, lacy stripes then onto a solid color openwork lace pattern and finally ending with a picot bind-off. This is one of those patterns that works well in all sorts of combinations. Two of my test knitters, Karen and Raquel made Hecate in other yarns & colors to make this point.
