Charlize is an elegant yet modern, crescent shaped shawlette that knits up beautifully in both semi-solid and variegated yarns, and can be worn casually or formally. Worked from the top center and outward to the ruffled edging, the lace portion is simple enough for a beginner to lace, while engaging enough for experienced lace knitters looking for a quick, fun knit. The rapid rate of increasing gives this unique accessory enough length to be worn as a scarf & also creates a curved shape that will wrap easily around the shoulders when worn as a shawl.
Directions are included for two size options, and are provided in row by row written instruction and chart form.
If you like the look of Charlize but love classic triangular shawls, check out Sacha, the triangular interpretation of this pattern! :)
20 sts and 32.5 rows = 4"/10 cm in 4x2 rib, unblocked.
Getting exact gauge is not critical, but it will affect yardage needed for your shawl.
I'm a twenty-something Pacific North westerner living in Olympia, Washington. I first learned to knit in the Fall of 2005 and after much self-teaching and practice, began designing my own patterns in early 2010. I know I'm not alone when I say I can't imagine life without my knitting! :)
