Patternum Novum (sort of) :: Ultravioleta

Back at the end of May, I had a pattern included in a kit available via Tanis Fiber Arts (with her stunning Cosmic Blue Label yarn). And I am pleased to say that Ultravioleta is now available as an individual download, for those of you who may have been interested in the pattern but who missed out on a kit.

Ultravioleta - $5 via Ravelry (no account required)

Ultravioleta is airy and feminine, with lots of lace and some bobbles sprinkled throughout for extra texture. The edging is separated by a band of garter stitch and has just the slightest amount of ruffle to it.

The specs...

Size: 42”/ 106.75 cm along top edge; 18.5”/ 47 cm height at center

Yarn: Tanis Fiber Arts Cosmic Blue Label Fingering (84% merino, 16% sparkling nylon; 420 yds/ 385 m per 115g); 1 skein in Luxe; or 420 yds/ 385 m of a fingering weight yarn (Anzula Nebula would be a nice substitute)

Needles: US 6 (4 mm) circular needle, at least 24" / 60 cm long, or size needed to obtain gauge

Gauge: 16 sts & 28 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Ultraviolet Chevron Lace pattern; 17 sts & 36 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Garter Stitch; 25 sts & 35 rows = 4”/ 10 cm in Stockinette St
