Quite a few people have asked me for my adaption of the pattern published at http://knitting-and.com/homework/perfection-leaf-lace.htm “#88 Perfection Leaf Lace”. I’ve used a modified version of this edging on the Cap Shawl (Victorian Lace Today) which also uses the same leaf pattern as an insert as the spirals increase, so the two were really made to go together.
To get the pattern to work well with the Cap Shawl, I’ve added some fagoting to the original design on the inner edge; and I’ve added beads – mainly because very fine lace-weight shawls tend to be a little bit flighty, and the beads just seem to make the drape. I also added beads into the leaf insert in the shawl body as well – just to keep things interesting.
