The Panetone color of 2017 is spring green. It has been popping up everywhere, and by some strange coincidence, I chose to knit my shawl Lintilla, in almost that color. I think mine has more of a blue undertone?
If you are intrigued by this color, Miss Agnes' blog just featured a wonderful article about the new Panetone color and its knitting possibilities here.
Lintilla is a wonderful shawl designed by Martina Behm. The ruffles at the edges are feminine without being overly frilly, and the shawl is so thin it can almost be worn as a scarf. I chose this beautiful green because in the ruffles it made me think of spring leaves unfurling.
I doubled two strands of laceweight yarn to make this shawl: Handmaiden’s Sea Lace and Anzula Breeze, which is a linen/silk blend. The large percentage of silk in this shawl gives it a wonderful drape, but the garter stitch pattern also gives it structure.
In June, I will be visiting Paris with my family, and I am looking forward to wearing my Lintilla there. One feels almost naked without a scarf in Paris, and this lightweight piece will be great for warmer weather. In the meantime, it will provide a pop of green to perk up any casual outfit!
