Release: Like a Lamb

Last night when I came home from work I received an email inquiring as to when Like a Lamb would be released.  Well, look at that, it is July, isn't it?!

What perfect timing, as I have my new Like a Lamb all blocked and ready to show off to the world:

At first I was a little bummed to have to wait to release the pattern until now, but now that July has come, and summer is in full swing, it seems to make perfect sense.  The lace weight yarn is perfect for summer knitting.  After a few repeats, the lace pattern is simple to follow, making this wrap quite travel-able (is that a word?).  

It took me some time to finish this one, mainly because I was working on other knits during 'knitting time'.  Like a Lamb was the project that was in a bag in my purse that I could bust out at any time- waiting rooms, the beach, or socializing with friends. 

I'm super excited about this color, and have already gotten use out of the wrap in the evenings (yes, despite the heat wave we are experiencing!).

This time I used a couple skeins of Malabrigo Lace in Paris Night colorway.   I barely dipped in to the second skein, so I'll have to figure out how to use my leftovers- anyone know of any good lace-weight baby patterns out there?

Interested in making your own?  The pattern is now available for purchase on Ravelry.

psst... more info on this one on Ravelry.

Errata alert:  The first edition of the pattern was missing a "yo" in row 13.  Updated patterns were sent out on July 18, 2012.  If you need the updated version, please contact me and I can send it on.
Pin It


  1. Beautiful! And I have to ask where the shawl pin is from....

  2. its a gorgeous colour Melynda! congrats on getting it off the needles!

  3. Hooray!! I have been waiting for this for months! I'm planning to make it a bit wider and a little longer, with a slit for a neck opening, so it can double as a nursing cover. I hope you don't mind my tweaking the design to make it more practical at this point in my life. I can't wait to cast on!!

  4. This is just gorgeous! I'm going to make myself finish two projects already on the needles before I cast on.

  5. It looks gorgeous!

  6. So stunning!! What an amazing new shawl design. And I'm a sucker for that Paris Night Malabrigo colourway, too....

  7. I think there's a YO missing on Row 13 of the pattern. Otherwise, loving it so far!
