This little shawl is the perfect accessory for chilly days and makes a great gift for a dear friend. It?s big enough to be wrapped around the neck and drapes beautifully while using only approximately one skein of sock yarn.
Elinor Shawlette is knit as a long and shallow triangle in plain stockinette and adorned with a traditional but non-fussy lace border. The special twist is that it?s knit in one piece from one tip to the other: The increases take place opposite the lace section while the shaping is done with short rows in the middle of the shawl. In short all a girl with a lot of sense could ask for!
26 sts x 32 rows = 10 x 10cm/4 x 4'' in stockinette stitch.

I learned knitting, crochet and sewing from my mum when I was young. I kept on going from there and soon invented my own projects. From making up my own patterns to writing them down and grading them it was only a small step. And here we are. :)
