I love the Waterlily pattern by Meghan Fernandes which was published in the Spring 2014 issue of PomPom magazine. The combination of knitting in the round, Latvian braids and lacework are so appealing.
I knit my first Waterlily in 2015, starting on 11th June and finishing on 28th Aug, using beautiful Splendor 4-ply yarn in Little Cat Feet from GingerTwistStudio. Initially apprehensive about the Latvian braid, Meghan’s wonderful tutorial walked me through the construction. I generally struggle with lacework, but the simple repeat pattern soon clicked into my memory. I was happy with the result, and for its debut, wore it to the Edinburgh International Festival for my birthday treat.
A second Waterlily followed. Again I used a wonderful yarn from GTS, Luscious 4-ply in Gorblimey. Both braid and lacework flew off my needles this time, and once again I was pleased with how easy the pattern was to knit. And, this version debuted on a recent wonderful weekend away!
