I want to knit the Lace Leaf Shawl (shown here), but it’s a present for my mother-in-law, and she wants a shawl that’s red and blue.
So how do you think it would work, trying to incorporate two colors into this pattern? And would it be hard to do it well? The only lace I’ve knitted so far is on a couple of baby cardigans, nothing very complicated. And I know basic intarisa and fair isle, but again I don’t have all that much experience with color work. What do you think? Should I pick a different pattern? (She didn’t say she wants a lace shawl - that part was my idea :)) How would you add colors to this pattern? Every-other-leaf? Do the leaves one color and the bits in between them in the other? Alternating rows of leaves? Which of all these options would be easiest to do?
Thank you soooooooooooo much for your help and advice!
