  The Juneberry Triangle
I'm so happy to share with you a new lace design that was published this week -- I've been itching to show you photos ever since I finished it in January. I designed this lace triangle for Veronik's second issue of St. Denis Magazine and got another chance to use her lovely wool Nordique.

Juneberry Triangle

I love yarns that sport rich, full palettes and Nordique sure delivers where color is concerned. In the dead of winter, when nights seemed endless and I had woolly lace on the brain, this amazingly rich burgundy was the perfect inspiration and spurred many long winter evenings of lace knitting.

Juneberry Triangle

At the time, I was feeling particularly scrappy and wanted to design a lace project that would give me a good challenge to sink my teeth into. What resulted is a piece that is not for the faint of heart! The majority of the lace motifs are true knitted lace in the traditional sense, meaning that the patterning falls on every row (both RS and WS), with no free stockinette rows in between.

Juneberry Triangle

Because the triangle is knit flat (back and forth) and patterned on both sides, it requires a bit more concentration than your average lace project and does involve getting familiar with directional decreasing from the Wrong Side (Slip, Slip, Purl & Purl 2 Together), but if you're up for a challenge this one is for you!

Juneberry Triangle

The magazine is a wonderful issue and full of designs from some of my favorite designers -- be sure to check out some of the other patterns from this issue on Ravelry here. To look up project details just for the Juneberry Triangle, click here.

Veronik has also already knit a stunning version of the same pattern in her new, lighter-weight yarn Boreale that is fantastic! How wonderful it is to knit lace in a variety of different gauges and yarn constructions. The Nordique version is warm and woolly with a more substantial 'fabric' feel. From what I can tell of the ice blue Boreal version, it's delicate, feather-light lace at its finest!

Juneberry Triangle

The triangle is finished with a wide, traditional knitted-on edging in place of a conventional bind-off to keep every part of the fabric equally elastic and to provide some directional contrast.

Juneberry continues my nostalgic fascination with bobbles... this was an experimentation in bobble-laden lace patterns and has a very berry-like texture as a result. I think it feels sophisticated while remaining fun and playful at the same time. I hope you enjoy it!

That IS definitely beautiful!

Wow--I'm very impressed! The texture is amazing. Not sure if I'm quite to that speed with my lace knitting yet, but now I'm definitely going to check out the rest of the magazine!

Everything about this triangle is lovely, but I especially love the color with the lace. It's a great red. The wiggly motif (I don't know what it's called) is really fun, and the bobbles are a perfect touch. Do want

Wow. I want to do that as a square shawl. It's wonderful!

Wow, this is absolutely stunning! I especially love the bobbles in the edging. Once I'm ready for some thought-requiring lace (lately it's been basic knits around these parts), this is definitely going on my needles. This, and the Willoughby pattern currently in hibernation :).

Okay, you totally and completely freak me out! Seriously, how does your brain work? This is so stunning!
BTW, I was at Hopkins High School on Saturday hoping to see you, but alas, you were teaching a class. :(

Woah! Gorgeous and wow, a lot LOT of work!

It is magnificent. On my list of someday knits.

gorgeous! oh i'm so impressed! just awed by that color! stunning!

this is gorgeous; i love the combination of motifs. what i can't figure out is how to get my hands on this magazine; is it orderable online or must i hope that my LYS carries it?

This is insanely beautiful. I'm definitely not up to it at this point, as I've never attempted any lace, but it really is gorgeous. You've outdone yourself with this one, I think.

That is simply stunning. An elegant piece. Don't know if I'm up to it. But it's tempting to try something so scrumptious.

stunning. wow! I love the transitions from one lace to the other. They work so well together. I haven't seen a shawl that is so pleasing in a while. Congratulations!

Great choice of color. Perfect match with this lovely pattern. The piece is romantic but still bold and modern. Love it!

ps.: You must have magic dust hidden somewhere in your apartment... how do you concentrate for a pattern like this? Oh boy... you really rock.

I've been making a lot of shawls lately and this one is absolutely beautiful! want to make this one too!!!

Oh my God this is beautiful!!!!! I love it! I wish I could design something like that!

How beautiful! It makes me want to ditch all my other lace projects and cast on immediately!

There are no words for this work of art.

Wow -- stunning and unique!

It's stunning...and everything else that has been said ...double! It's way beyond any lace I've done, but have to try it!

I think I just drooled all over my key board!!!

This is so lovely.. I think I'll have to find an option to purchase a copy of the magazine. And complicated pattern on both sides of the fabric sounds like I have to try it out :D

OMG it's so beautiful! I literally just finished my first lace project (a doily that's blocking as we speak) and I have a hemlock on the needles, but I think I'll have to work up to this beauty. That border is amazing!

What a beautiful pattern!

That is gorgeous! (Translation: I want. I want. I want. I want. I want.)

Tre bela

Stunning, absolutely stunning.

For the first time in my (rather long) life I find myself actually considering knitting BOBBLES! Nay, WANTING to knit bobbles!!

How on earth did you manage to get bobbles into a design without making it appear ugly? :-p

Wondering if the pattern book is available in the UK...


Great and stunning addition to the already wonderful St-Denis catalogue #2!

Gorgeous. That color is so rich, I just love it.

It's really magnific!

OH! It's just lovely! Beautiful lace stitch patterns and the perfect yarn for great drape.
Gotta go and get this issue of St. Denis!

I am speechless. This is the kind of art that takes your breath away!

Quite the impressive lace!

Just lovely! I love the bobbles, and the movement of the stitch patterns.

This is stunning! Gorgeous! The yarn is rich and alive! I love this!

It makes me think of a Czarina wearing this over a hunting jacket riding to someplace in Russa. Simply stunning. You are blessed with a wonderful gift, Jared, and an inspiration to me.

love all the detail, beautiful! gonna try this one for sure!

WOW! Another amazing design. Where can I get my hands on the magazine?
Seattle Knitters Guild

It's gorgeous! I wonder if there is any way for someone living outside of North America to acquire a copy of this magazine.

This is stunning and the color is gorgeous, love, love love it !

Definitely one of my favorites among your creations. Me successfully knitting this pattern is about as realistic as recreating the Easter Island statues, but I aspire to this. Bravo.

Beautiful! And especially meaningful after the class I took with you this past weekend. Thanks again, your class was wonderful, I enjoyed it so much.


Take my breath awaaaaaay - I'm looking for a new project, though, I'm not 100% sure I'm awesome enough for this one =)

definitely one seriously gorgeous piece of knitting. Just beautiful.

Fabulous!!! Definitely going on my queue.

Omgosh, that is breathtaking!! What a perfect marriage ofyarn and pattern...gotta make this one!

utterly ravishing. The inside of your knitting brain must be quite something. (i'm picturing something like a knitted narnia...)

You can order a copy of the magazine online here.

OMG! This is the gorgeous thing have ever seen! You're the Knitting King, seriously!!!! I loooove this shawl!
COngratulations for being sooooo talented!!!

It's magnificent!

It's beautiful! Love the mixture of lace patterns. Sooo perfect! :)

You are so talented! I can't wait to sink my needles into this one!

Truly a beautiful design, Jared!!

Wow!!! Juneberry is BREATHTAKING!!!

I noticed this on Ravelry the other day. Very very pretty!

I'm deeply in love with it. I wish I were a faster lace knitter, because I want one NOW! But that exalted level of pretty is worth the extra effort.


I have to get a hold of both the pattern and the yarn!
You never cease to amaze me.

What a beautiful thing!

Stunning and so original!
You're truly Gifted.

Such a gorgeous piece! It's really interesting how using a different yarn can make such a different look (comparing the blue lacey light thing to this more substantial red warmth) and feel.

Your Juneberry is wonderfull
Do you think it will be possible to purchase the pattern or the magazine in France ?

What a stunning creation and the yarn color makes it really elegant!

This is beautiful!!!!! I love it!

It is amazing! I want to knit it!

This is so stunning, I like how substantial the knitted fabric is as a result of your choice of yarn.

It's so gorgeous!

I love how vibrant this shawl looks, ornate and beautiful. It also doesn't hurt that it is in one of my favorite colors!


just gorgeous!

It has already been said, but:
You've outdone yourself, Mr. Flood.

This is truly a museum-quality piece of textile art. While I may never knit it myself (it almost hurts my brain just to try to understand the pattern visually), I will certainly be inspired by it for a long time.


Jared that is just gorgeous. I am going to put that on my to-do winter knitting.

It was great meeting you in St. Louis, I so enjoyed your class and got a lot out of it. I am ready to start doing a sweater.

It is beautiful and the colour is so nice too.

Jared, you continue to stun and amaze not only with yer phabulous photographs, but also yer color choice and knitting! I was hoping to knoit something else this summer and now....I'ma have to make this. Thanks for all the inspiration.

Stunning work.

What a masterpiece!

This shawl has awesome texture! I love the baubles! I have put this in my favorites on Ravelry, and intend to knit it someday in the future after getting a little more experience. My Mom and I love following your work!

Love, love, love this shawl! Well done.

the shawl is gorgeous, and I was able to order the new St. Denis book from Jimmy Beans' Wool. Vacation is coming and to be honest lace is calling me!

Bravo! The next time I need a challenge I know where to look.

Just love this shawl. What a piece!!!

BTW, where did you get your dress form? I'm dying to get one but just can't seen to find any. I really like how yours looks sort of... vintage. Maybe it is?

Such a beautiful shawl!


Amazing patterns and texture. Enough said.

Il est magnifique, quel beau travail
