On this asymmetrical, sideways knit shawl, Melanie Rice combined pretty ribbon lace with an uneven ribbing motif in our soft linen Sparrow. Think waves lapping against a shoreline grooved with tiny rivulets and ripples in the sand. The piece is worked on the bias from the right tip to the wide left edge.

Melanie offered up this stunning bottom-up shawl, which is worked essentially on the bias, as it builds two diverging cable border panels while simultaneously filling the center with easy garter stitch. The right and left tips are worked separately to complete the shawl, and finished with an unusual bind off. Worked up in Cygnus, we love the idea of this shawl in faded denim Mercury, deep blue Perseus or bright Sol, a Quince favorite.

Classic, classic cabled scarf made new and exciting again by Melanie's expert eye for detail. This etched piece features (also classic) a long fringe at either end. Though gorgeous in Wasabi, shown here, try it in denim-blue Fjord, deep tomato-red Poppy, or pretty blush Shell.
