I wanted to do knit lace stranded.…Double coloured lace, WHAT? Yes, you read right. I will hooligan my way around knitting lace in 2 contrasting colours.

Yes, this pattern can be knitted in 1 colour, but you must admit the effects are so much “cooler” in 2. The lace eyelets, allow a slight peek to the wrong side, showing off the floats.

If you have followed the growth of Woolly Hooligan designs, you must know, I love them “floats”.

Enjoy. I loved making this shawl, its super “funky” modern and eye-catching.

The pattern is meant to challenge, but not too much to make your head hurt. Just an unconventional lace in bright punchy colours. Fun :)

Length is measured from end of fringe to the other end of fringe.
