Just One More: Haven River

Time for July's Just One More shawl pattern!  This stunning piece was inspired by the construction of Trapeze, one of my all-time favorite MKAL's. Haven River was shown (and taught) this past weekend at The Tin Smith's Wife retreat and my students were a bit blown away by it's geometry!
First, three trapezoids are knit from the center out. These trapezoids are then connected by triangles, which I call connectors. Then, stitches are picked up for the bottom border and a beaded lace ruffle is worked.
Finally, the top edge of the shawl is finished off with attached i-cord. Of course, you can knit this pattern with no beads at all and it will still be stunning!
I knit Haven River in two yarns (you know me, one is never enough!) The light green version shown is in Fibre Company Meadow, a stunning light fingering weight blend of merino, llama, silk and linen. The darker, more variegated version is in Sheepwalk Merino 600, a lovely merino fingering with 600yards/skein.  Be careful when choosing yarn for this shawl to make sure it doesn't have too much variegation... you can see that the lace pattern and beads can get easilylost.
