Emma's Shawl

from Gradiance Yarns
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Emma's Shawl

Emma's Shawl

Pattern Description:

Emma's Shawl is a simple looking shawl utilising repeated rows of rib and lace stitches. The knitting is done on the bottom border first, from the right hand side to the left. Then stitches are picked up along the selvedge edge of the border, and using short rows a very quick and shallow crescent is given to the finished item.

When following the main written pattern you should have plenty of yarn in a 100g/400m skein of fingering weight yarn. Gauge is not overly important in this, but you want a fairly solid density of stitches along the rib sections so they stand out. If you want to make the shawl smaller or larger there are instructions at the back to help you adjust the short row shaping pattern, but please bear in mind you will need less or more yarn to do this.


Gauge is not overly important. When working to the set pattern and 400metres of fingering weight yarn you should not run short.


  • 1 pair 3.25mm needles
