The combination of stitches and delicate balance of lacework placed it on the cover of Refined Knits by Jennifer Wood. Anwen is a feminine, ethereal name that means very fair and beautiful. It captures the essence of this shawl, a collection of three old stitch patterns: a little frost flower stitch, a bit of old shale stitch, and a lot of fern lace stitch. This combination makes it a beautifully intricate shawl as well as a study of different arrangements of decreases and yarn overs. Anwen is made in two pieces worked from the ends, then invisibly seamed at the center with Kitchener stitch.
Gift Kit includes Refined Knits by Jennifer Wood (pattern inside) and selected yarn. What better way to purchase a knitting book than to have the yarn to make one of the patterns as well! This purchase is for the intermediate knitter who adores women's clothing articles. The patterns within are extremely stylish with a wide array of yarns available for each pattern.
