Free Pattern - June Bunnies Shawl

June bunnies, angora mix
triangle lace shawl

It started with the yarn... of course. I finally got some of that gorgeous angora/merino/nylon mix that I was thinking of for so long and I could not resist casting on SOMETHING with it, as soon as I opened the package. (hence the bunnies... it's SO soft!) It was a movie night, so it could not be complicated.

I cast on without thinking much, and then picked out a simple lace pattern, that is inserted several times, finishing with a stretchy bind off.  Here is the result:

 This was a very quick and enjoyable knit, so I made another one, with a finer yarn, called Diamante - 70%merino, 20%silk and 10% cashmere - amazing fiber mix and the color.... bright, I mean, REALLY bright cobalt blue! Here are some pics:

The blue shawl is done slightly differently, although it uses the same pattern. If you would like to knit this shawl, you can find the pattern here -download now - it's free! ;) I hope you'll enjoy it.

Happy knitting!


  1. Your shawl is so beautifull. It looks amuzing in white and in tirqoise colour. I'll try to knit it for me. I would like to ask you if I can use your pattern to learn this to my students in my courses if a student wants to knit this. Thank you for your pattern that I'll use for my shawl.Marieta.

  2. Thank You! Yes, of course you can use the pattern! Please, share some photos if you knit it :)

  4. Good night. I'm from Brazil. I found your wonderful work. Better yet you make them available for free to others. Congratulations! Not everyone has this detachment. Thank you! God bless you, that you can always do beautiful work.

  5. Boa noite. É muito lindo este xale e sua cor bem vibrante.

  6. This is beautiful! What yarn did you use for the first shawl!

  7. The stitch number for lace needs (6*X)+1. The example in the pattern is X=10 so that you need 61 st. Can X=6 so you can start the lace at 37 st?

  8. I'm new to knitting. I'm trying to figure out exactly when I need to insert the lace section in order to mane the blue shawl. Would you be able to tell me the row number? I'm trying to strobe of my count is correct. Also when you finish the lace do you start the main part of the pattern back at the next odd number increase or a larger number?

  9. I am trying this pattern and i am already confusedon the start up...
    It says cast on 3 stitches. Knit 7 rows. I am taking that as 7 rows of 3 stitches. Correct? Then the pick up and knit 3 stitches along the side of the garter tab where the purl bumps are...
    Please help!!

  10. Im confused too! Did the first bit...patterned 7 rows...then what ? Do i start the lace pattern?
