First published in The Knitter, Issue 176 in May 2022, and pictured on the magazine cover, Ceridwen is now available as an individual pattern download.
The traditional lace patterns of Bell Lace and Pyrenees Lace are combined with side borders worked in garter stitch and diamond lace motifs to create a large stole with an heirloom feel. Ceridwen is knitted in two halves to ensure the main lace pattern is symmetrical and the two pieces are joined using a garter stitch graft.
