I'm a former academic medical librarian who left the world of academia for the world of knitting. My time is split between writing knitting patterns and renovating and restoring the nearly 100-year-old house I share with my husband and two dogs. I enjoy a good beer and I could eat Indian food at every meal. I blog at frecklesandpurls.com Instagram: @knittingallisonView all patterns by designer (8) »
The design for this shawl was inspired by the enormous flower markets you can find in most large cities. The body is an all-over floral lace pattern and the border is reminiscent of bouquets of flowers, fresh from the market, still wrapped in newsprint.
The Flower Market Shawl is a triangular shawl with a garter stitch border. It is knit from the center back to the bottom edge, with increases at each edge and along the center stitch.
The pattern includes both chart instructions and full written instructions.
22 stitches and 35 rows/4 inches in the lace pattern of Chart B (after blocking).
Gauge is not crucial since this is not a fitted garment but changes in gauge can affect both the size of the shawl and the amount of yarn required to complete it.
