Soft Focus by @Samantha_guerin_design


Soft Focus is a generously sized, light and ethereal shawl. This asymmetrical triangle begins with just a few stitches and increases out to its full width. Easily memorized lace sweeps across the body of the shawl, nestled between waves of garter stitch and a slipped stitch edge creates a smooth and tidy border.

As in all of my patterns featuring lace, instructions are both charted and written for your knitting preference.

Manchelopi is an unspun yarn that is made 100% with Manchega wool. Its color shades and its twist-free slivers make this “cheese” a rare and high-quality material with which you will be able to create unique and inimitable clothing.

As for the thickness, due to its double sliver, it will depend on our control of the needles. If we want to knit it in two strands to make it easier for us, we would be facing a thickness of 230m / 100g (DK); on the other hand, if you are one of the highly skilled ones and you dare with a single strand, you will have double the meters: 460m / 100g (Fingering).
