Purple Ishbel


I LOVE it.

Pattern: Ishbelby Isolda Teague
Yarn: Tosh Sock, in Clematis, 1.5 skeins
Size: I made an extra-large version. The stockinette portion in the large size has 48 stitches more than the small version, so I did mine with 48 stitches more than the large version. I worked the lace charts as follows: A, B, A, B, A, B, A, C, D, E.


As I was knitting it, I was concerned that the color variation would obscure the lace pattern, but I don’t think it did at all.


It’s such a wonderful purple color, I think it will look dynamite as a scarf with my black winter coat.Β  I hereby declare this project to be a success.

So hey, want to see a cute kitty picture?


I thought so.

  1. Oooooh, very beautiful! And the kitty is cute. I didn’t let mine on my Ishbel. It’s not that I don’t trust her, but she unpinned my Shetland Triangle when it was blocking!

  2. I just finished one as well, and wasn’t it fun! I think I’m going to have to make another one (or two) at some point as gifts.

    Love your yarn choice, too!

  3. Wow, your Ishbel is incredible. Really, it’s stunning. That purple color is really lovely on you, too. Congrats on a successful FO, and cute kitty picture!!

  4. That’s really lovely! I am ALMOST done with my own purple Ishbel, and maybe someday I’ll start blogging again so I can write all about it. πŸ˜‰
