Double Horseshoe Wedding Shawl


In Great Britain, and some areas of North America, a horseshoe is considered a symbol of good luck. An ornately decorated, fabric horseshoe is often given to a bride to carry down the aisle at her wedding. It has double the luck, because not only is it knitted in the shape of a horseshoe, the lace pattern in this piece is called the horseshoe pattern. The challenge for this piece was ‘bending’ the lace into a horseshoe shape. I achieved it by doubling number of stitches on a repeat at intervals around the curve.
