Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, basic lace, basic shaping

Pattern Description:

Peacefully cascading lacy leaves adorn this shawl. The leaves extend past the main shawl body and flutter elegantly with movement. The shawl and dangling leaves are designed so that they are attractive on both sides. Futhermore, the shape of the shawl will make sure it stays on your shoulders without the need for a shawl pin. Of course, you can adorn yourself with one if you wish.

The shawl is worked from the top-down. Each dangling leaf is then worked individually after the shawl body is bound off and worked so that won't curl and is reversible. Be prepared for lots of compliments when you wear it!

(Sample shown worked using Yarn Chef Creme Brulee Fingering (50% merino wool/ 50% silk, 5.3oz/ 150g, 650yds/ 594.5m); 1 skein; Color: Dancing Dahlias. I cushioned the yardage a bit because everyone knits and consumes yarn differently. I actually made the sample using 645yds/ 590m of yarn, just slightly under 1 skein. Please make sure you have some extra yarn as recommended, just in case. This is especially important if you are substituting yarn.)

Gauge:

20 sts and 30 rows = 4"/ 10cm in St st.

Chart 5 worked once (26 sts and 27 rows) - 2.5"/ 6.5cm wide and 3.75"/ 9.5cm long.

For best results, it's important to wash and block your gauge swatches.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:
