Question about Shetland Triangle Pattern

Hi all, Has anyone seen the new Holiday 2006 Interweave Knits magazine? They republished our beloved Backyard Leaves scarf pattern in this issue ( and also the Misty Garden scarf). Seeing these patterns republished causes me to ask the question; has anyone seen the Shetland Triangle shawl from Wrap Style republished (legally) anywhere?

    I found other shawls made by Evelyn A. Clark on Fiber Trends website. It's called the Lace Leaf Shawl and it looks just like the one in the Wrap Style book. Should be about $5.50 at your local yarn store.

    Hope that helps.

    Lace Leaf is very similar, but not identical to the Shetland Triangle. The motifs in Lace Leaf are straight-sided like diamonds, while the ones in Shetland Triangle are more rounded.

    However, Evelyn Clark's Flower Basket (Interweave Knits summer 2004 and available as an indivifual pattern), Lace Leaf, and Shetland Triangle shawls all share the same basic construction and have similar edgings. Each just uses different allover lace pattern for the main fabric.

    After having made all three shawls, I am starting to understand how to substitute other lace stitches into the basic recipe to create additional variations. It's such a great pattern and takes so little yarn that I could really see myself getting sucked into making lots of "experiments".

    It seems that trickiest part is working out the partial lace pattern for the first few rows where the shawl grows from just a few stitches into enough stitches to establish a full repeat of the main pattern. Once the main pattern gets going, it's not as difficult to figure out how to increase in pattern, but you still have to stay on your toes.
