Shown in colors : Boardwalk (a), Sand Dollar (b), Inlet (c) and Reef (d).

(a) 1 skein, (b) 1 skein, (c) 1 skein, (d) 1 skein.

US size 5 (3.75 mm) needle, circular or straight.

Notes From the Designer:

•An easy intro to lace for adventurous beginners, or a meditative piece for more experienced knitters, this shawl features a simple 2-row repeat that shifts slightly with each color change but otherwise remains the same throughout the entire piece. If you prefer not to shift the texture, simply omit the second pattern and continue the first pattern throughout the body. You can also shift the texture more often, if you like. This pattern is yours to adjust as you please.

•Width can be adjusted by casting on more or fewer stitches in a multiple of 8 + 6. Length can be adjusted by working more or fewer 2-row repeats within specific sections or across the body as a whole. Sample shown used 4 full skeins of yarn, 1 in each color. You may opt to use more or less of each skein, and more or fewer colors.

•If working with multiple skeins of the same color of hand-dyed yarn, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every couple of rows to avoid color pooling.

•When blocking, make sure to fully open the eyelets in each rib to see the full effect of the lace. If using the suggested yarn, you can block aggressively for length, as both alpaca and cotton will stretch with blocking.

•While working on the sample for this pattern, I had a lot of time to think about love in its various forms. Self-love, love for an individual, love for a larger whole, and love as its own concept. How do we define something that defies definition? How do we encapsulate it in a handmade object? Is the finished object the definition of love? Is it the time and effort that goes into making it? The act of giving the finished object to another or keeping it to wrap around ourselves? Is it all of these things, or some, or none of them? I don’t have the answer. Maybe there isn’t one. What I do know is that knitting, whether for yourself or another, can be an act of love, like speaking up or out, or cooking a meal, or just sitting in the company of another. Whether you keep this shawl for yourself or give it to someone special, you’ll have plenty of time to find your own definition of love while working on it.

I fell in love with your videos while re-teaching myself to knit. I'm a crochet person and have been for years but I wanted to learn more about knitting and getting a different result with my stitches. I wanted to try out this pattern first, its easy to understand and if I don't know about a stitch then its not that hard to research or ask. I'll let you know how it goes. :)

So excited to put this beautiful pattern into my knitting journey. Learning so many things; so many new skills. As a caretaker for my Mom, I have joyfully discovered how meditative handwork can be. And I will say that my Mom loves watching me knit and she absolutely loves the colours I have been using for my projects . . .

This pattern is elegantly simple (if I decide to use one colorway) and slightly less elegant but a lot of fun (depending on what I raid from my stash. I love the transition from one color to the next! My knitting needles are jockeying for position! Time to get going on this!!!! :)

I was looking for "that" elegant but simple pattern for my made spun yarn. FOUND IT! My mom asked me to make a wrap for a very special friend of hers. I made ups several swatch patterns for her to choose from, and I knew that Love and Lace would be it. Chandi, thank you for all that you do. Your FB, Youtube, patterns and yarn are in my opinion the best available! Hugs Kim

Simply elegant! I have made a beautiful hand spun yarn for my mom's dear friend and wanted an elegant but simple wrap pattern and this is it!

I bought your suggested yarn to go with this pattern and wow, it is so soft and I love the texture it has. I can’t wait to change colors. This pattern is easy to follow. I’m making it as a wrap so made it narrower, but I can see myself making several different ones with different widths
