I - like most of you on here I guess - am obsessed with knitting and crocheting, and have been since I was about 5 years old. My dear mum taught me well and I have never lost the bug. I have designed and sold items at craft fairs for a few years, and am now adding some designs online. Enjoy !!!
NOTE - I also work as a pattern checker/proofreader for some major craft book publishing companies. I am happy to check any of your written knitting or crochet pattern for mistakes, and advise on style, before you publish. Please contact me for details.
This is a lovely asymmetric triangular shawl knitted in 2 yarns and 3 sections. The pattern is designed for DK yarn using a 4.5mm needle, but it could easily be adjusted for a different thickness of yarn. It uses a ball each of King Cole Riot DK and Rowan Pure Wool DK. Gauge is NOT important for this shawl!! The pattern contains written instructions.
The first section is stocking stitch with interspersed dropped stitches knitted in a long repeat variegated yarn; next is a 2 colour garter stitch section using the variegated yarn and a contrasting single colour yarn; finally a simple lace section with a picot bind off in the single colour yarn which continues around the second edge of the shawl.
