Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting from a chart, basic lace increases and decreases

Pattern Description:

Elegant and ethereal, this is a quick, relatively simple top-down triangular shawl that begins with the same four row pattern repeat until the edging. This is a great shawl for a beginning lace knitter, (or a more experienced lace knitter who wants something simple to knit that doesn't involve a lot of concentration!)....Only the bottom edge is charted, and this can be extended for a slightly larger shawl by repeating the edge chart.

Gauge:

To achieve the open, airy, lacy look of this shawl, be sure to knit with a slightly larger needle ; this will ensure that the holes produced by the yarn overs are nice and big. Also, this shawl needs to be blocked somewhat aggressively so that the pattern can breathe :-)

Since I am quite a loose knitter, a size 6 needle is just right for me to create a nice open, lacy fabric. If you are a tight knitter, I suggest sizing up to a size 7 or even 8.

Materials:

  • 400-440 yards of fingering weight yarn, size 6 or 7 knitting needles

You Will Also Need:

  • stitch markers, large needle, blocking mats and wires
