Transformative mods: A modern spin on Flukra

handepande flukra knitted shawl gudrun johnston flukra

It has never occurred to me to wonder what it would look like if Ray Eames had designed knitwear, but I’m pretty sure this is it. “Handepande” took Gudrun Johnston’s lace shawl pattern, Flukra, knitted it in a heavier (albeit just fingering) weight yarn and replaced the scalloped edges with garter stitch. The denser fabric and clean border really show off that graphic stitch pattern, the result being a shawl that is simultaneously cozier and more modern. I want it.
