A long crescent-shaped stole with deep cobweb frill border, short row shaping in the stockinette stitch body, and thoughtfully placed beads to highlight the edges and transition rows. Dropped stitches create the open weblike edging, and beaded twisted rib finishes the gently curved stockinette body. This shawl is knit from the bottom up and is written in two versions, with instructions for both Sock and DK weight yarn; the edging may also be customized for depth.
Gauge: Sock yarn shawl: 15 st x 40 rows/4" in stockinette stitch; approximately 6 horizontal web repeats/4".
(DK shawl: 12 st x 34 rows/4" in stockinette stitch; approximately 5 horizontal web repeats/4"), after blocking.
Gauge is not critical for this project; however, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
Recovering attorney and emigree from Seventh Avenue, I like writing patterns almost as much as knitting them. Visit me at www.jenniferdassau.com
