Chosen Path is a lace shawl shown in three different weights of yarn, knit in one piece from the center-top outward. With both charts and written instructions, knitters are able to choose the most comfortable way to follow the pattern.
Will you take Path A, which alternates stockinette and lace panels and requires approximately 450 yards of dk/worsted weight, 450 yards of sport weight or 600 yards of fingering weight?
Or will you take Path B, which starts out with a stockinette center and then moves into the lace chart and requires approximately 450 yards of dk/worsted weight, sport weight or fingering weight?
22 sts/32 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on size 6 needles with fingering weight yarn
18sts/28 Rows = 4 inches in stockinette on size 7 needles with sport weight yarn
14 sts/26 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on size 9 needles with dk/worsted weight yarn
Exact gauge is not important but do note that a looser gauge will result in the use of more yardage.
I first picked up a pair of needles in 2007 and became smitten immediately. It was as if this new, creative world just opened for me. Aided by my cat Ralph, who loves to lay on my blocking FOs, I started LeftSideKnits, as an outlet for my love of knitting. I began experimenting with designing in 2010 and it has quickly become my true love.
You can find me on Ravelry as LeftSideKnits.
