Lyttelton Shrug

Just in time for the holidays and the colder weather, here's a post about one of my summer knits. This knit was the perfect accompaniment to my "little flowery dress". That would be the summer equivalent of the "little black dress" :0)

Knit in Cotolino by Queensland Collection - the yarn is a Cotton/Linen blend. Ideal for the summer heat.
The pattern is Lyttelton by Kate Davies. I'm not sure if the cable part of the pattern makes the lace part pull in different directions, or vice versa. But I like the 'waves' it produces.
The fabric made is kind of thick, so this may also be great for the fall, or even this Carolina winter, which is really not THAT cold! We'll see if I can find a suitable long sleeved LBD to go with.

BTW, the dress I'm wearing was part of the bargainous Liberty range at Target this summer. I love it and hope to be wearing it for many summers to come :0)

Very nice! How long did it take you to make it?

Love the shrug! You'll get a lot of wear out of it for sure.
