Miriam Felton's (MimKnits) Seraphim is a very simple, yet elegant design that makes one think of feathered wings - hence the name.
If using fingering weight yarn, the solid stockinette upper portion gives a warmth not found in most lace shawls. It would be perfect to throw over a t-shirt in a drafty room, or could spice up a plain black dress for an evening out. The stockinette upper slowly fades into the lace edging for a subtle effect.
Yarn Requirements:8 oz (about 900 yards) of fingering weight
wool or wool blend. Any fiber may be used, but the lace will show to
best advantage with a fiber that will block well.
Suggested Needles: 3.75mm (US Size 5) 24" circular needle or size to obtain gauge.
Notions: at least 4 stitch markers, and a row counter would be handy.
Gauge: 21 sts = 4" in stockinette after blocking.
Finished Size: 72" across the top and 36" from center top to bottom point
Techniques Used: Techniques used include knit, purl, yarn over
(yo), knit 2 together (k2tog), slip slip knit (ssk), sl1-k2tog-psso,
and a centered double decrease.
