Nymphalidea - completed

ready for blocking
May 2015
While it looked somewhat strange when off the needles, Nymphalidea was a fun and fairly fast knit. The pattern and yarn specifics can be found on this post.

Wedge lace detail
The shawl is composed of welts (contrasting yarn) and wedges (variegated yarn) where the lace is created by knitting 2 stitches together and adding yarn overs in short rows.

Nymphallidea bound off edge 

begins with 12 stitches


I knit wedges A, B, C once each; wedge D ten times; wedge E ten times; wedge F five times, and wedges G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, and O once each. The welts were knit according to the original pattern through the fifth E wedge, and from that point on, I knit the alternate wedge. 

The finished shawl is approximately 66 inches long.


  1. Very nice!
    Love the colors!

  2. Beautiful! I love the little tufts of blue from the variegated yarn. It is a very interesting shawl.

  3. Oh Nancy. You really did a very nice job with this shawl. Love it . Love how you have shown it to us. Gorgeous.. ALMOST makes me want to do lacework

  4. This will look really elegant with a nice coat or sweater. Just lovely!

  5. I really like the lacy bits on the edge between the dark welts. It's really beautiful all blocked out!

  6. That is so pretty and delicate looking. Just right for strolling on a cool evening.

  7. Unique .....the lacy part is very interesting. :-)
