Frosted Leaves

It was a cold day back in January when I started working on this design so wintery weather was definitely on my mind! When I was looking for the perfect lace for a new cowlette I rediscovered this little arrow lace which has been a favourite of mine for a long time!

I decided to use it, but then I had to figure out what to do next. That was when I remembered Bestla – a shawl I designed in 2017. I really loved the lace I came up with then so I decided to adapt it for a triangular shape with a spine.

The name for Bestla came from a Norse Frost Giant and I already had frosted leaves and cold weather on my mind when I started the design process. Then I found this stunning skein of Eden Cottage Yarns Titus Fingering in Steel and everything came together!
