from Knitting Kninja
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Clothilde

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on
  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Increase
  • Decrease

Pattern Description:

Clothilde can also be purchased bundled with Arabella as Two Ladies. The bundled package is $10.00 on Knitting Kninja.

Clothilde is a lace shawl knit in one piece from the center top outward. Utilizing traditional gull wing lace that flares into spear points at the edge, Clothilde is a good project for the intermediate lace knitter. With both written instructions and charts, knitters should be able to find their most comfortable way of following the pattern. The pattern can be easily customized by changing the number of repeats of either the Gull Wing or the Spearhead lace.

  • 400 yds fingering weight yarn for size Small (Shown in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock - Mediumweight 100% merino, 380 yds per 100g skein) Note: I used only one skein for my small sized shawl, but I'd advise buying an extra skein for security.
  • 450 yds DK weight yarn for size Large (Shown in Malabrigo Yarn Silky Merino 50% silk, 50% merino, 150 yds per 50g skein, 3 skeins used) Note: Some test knitters were close to running out of yarn, so again, buying an extra skein for security is not a bad idea.
