Wow, looking back at my Rav notebook, I see that I started this project a year ago and I’m finally almost done with the pattern-writing. Amazing how much time has flown and how things have changed in a year.
This design was inspired by the ocean and mermaids. I really wanted a lace edging that reminded me of ocean waves, and the lace pattern reminded me of mermaid tails. I had the trickiest time getting this started, placing the lace pattern properly within the triangle shaping, and getting the lace edge just so.
I started off with the idea of randomly placing beads throughout the pattern, but as I went along, I decided that it didn’t have the effect I was looking for. If I were to go with this idea again, I’d have to choose a sparkly yarn, rather than randomly placing beads.
I didn’t want to frog all my work, so I did something a little crazy.
