This blog post is designed as a useful resource for inspiration for a specific yarn. There are projects that use it, and patterns that call for it. It's so handy to have all this in one place!
Just FYI - there are no links to Ravelry here. We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere. If they're only available on Ravelry we will say that, but not link to it.
The first part of this blog post will give you patterns that specifically call for Titus Lace and the second part shows you our projects using this yarn. Do you have a project in Titus Lace that you would like us to include? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with an image and the pattern information and we will add it. This page will grow over time as more designs are released and more projects finished!
For most of the designs released since 2018 you can find links to social media for the designers and publications on the Design Collaboration page HERE.
Braithwaite by Victoria Magnus – Driftwood
This triangular shawl blends a mix of simple stocking stitch (ideal for TV or travel knitting) with beautiful, graphic lace panels. It is simple enough for beginning lace knitters, but not too boring for advanced lace knitters. One skein of yarn will make a shawl with 166cm (65in) wingspan and 82cm (32in) depth.
Lochnagar Top by Little Theorem - Thunder
A simple cowl neck top that’s perfect for relaxed summer wear. It is worked from the top down using a simple construction. Cast on stitches at the shoulder and work down the back to the underarm, working the lace pattern as you go. Stitches are picked up at each shoulder, with a long cast on in the middle forming the cowl neck and worked down the front to the underarm. All stitches are joined in the round and worked straight down to the hem. The pattern is written for nine sizes with a garment bust from 75 - 155cm / 30 - 62”. Yarn requirements are 460 - 1300m / 500 - 1420yds depending on the size.

The smaller size only uses around half a skein of yarn, while the larger size still uses less than a skein of laceweight yarn! The smaller size is 14” x 64” using 415m/455yds and the larger size is 20” x 72” using 670m/730yds.
Patricia Shawl by Heidi McCarthy – Cornflower (discontinued colour)
A deep crescent shawl featuring sections of repeating lace motifs edged with a deep border reminiscent of overlapping petals. The shawl shaping begins as a traditional triangle with edge and spine increases. The spine increases are discontinued when the deep border begins, creating the deep crescent effect. The pattern requires 645 - 678 yards (590 - 620 m) of laceweight yarn.
A gentle crescent shawl with flowing lace and garter sections. Charts are provided for the lace sections, along with line-by-line instructions. This shawl uses one skein of laceweight yarn for the large size or two skeins of fingering or sock weight yarn (~730m/800yds) for the medium size. The medium size is approximately 183cm (72”) diameter across straight top edge x 46cm (18”) neck to bottom edge. The large size is approximately 213cm (84”) diameter across straight top edge x 46cm (18”) neck to bottom edge.
Shetland Forest Garden by Cath Ward - Charcoal
A triangular Shetland Lace shawl knitted in one piece. It incorporates a garter stitch centre, borders of rose trellis and tree motifs and is finished with simple lace edgings. Both charted and written instructions are included in this pattern. A single skein will make a shawl approximately 85cm deep x 176cm across the top edge.
Heidi's Irene by Julie Harris - Steel and Twig
An elongated, winged triangular shawl with a central spine worked from the top down. It features a variety of lace patterns and combines solid areas with more open sections and a decorative hem edging. This crochet pattern has two versions, a standard laceweight version and a fine laceweight version incorporating additional sections of pattern. Either version can be worked from a single 100g skein of yarn.
Heidi made a few adjustments to this shawl and used two full skeins of laceweight for this colourblock effect.
Harriet's Water's Edge by Boo Knits - Tide
A top down, crescent shaped shawl with an all over lace design and a beaded lace border. A single skein of laceweight yarn (656 yards/600 m) will make a shawl 75” (190cm) wide, 21” (53.5cm) deep after blocking. This pattern is suitable for most laceweight yarns of around 800m/100g with the exception of alpaca based and other yarns that will not hold a block well. Measurements will differ depending on yarn, tension, blocking etc and these are therefore given as a guide only.

A cardigan with short, slightly puffed and pleated sleeves, top-down construction, and buttoned only from neck to bust with 5 buttons. It is knitted on circular needles. The pattern is written for 9 sizes to fit bust 76cm/30in - 117cm/46in, using 875 - 1640 yards (800 - 1500 m) depending on size. This pattern is only available on Ravelry.
