I Heart Lace

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over, single and double decrease

Pattern Description:

This will look well in any lightweight yarn that has a good drape, like alpaca, wool, silk, cashmere or mixes of these - to name a few. You might want to use a slightly larger needle for mohair.

Pick a needle that will produce you a fabric you are happy with, since this is a shawl, the gauge is not something to worry about too much.

I believe this pattern to be suitable for beginner lace knitters. The body is a simple stockinette and the lace chart is fairly simple, if you pay attention to rows with a double decrease.

I would strongly suggest using markers for the center stitch. If you decide to use markers for each lace repeat, please, read carefully the instructions!

The shawl has been tested in a variety of yarns, it looks well in solid colors, as well as in slightly variegated, tonal yarns and yarns with long color changes,

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The pattern is calculated for 3 sizes, but it can be further adjusted, if desired.

Materials:

  • you will need about 420-600 yards of fingering weight yarn, 3,5mm ( US 4 ) circular needles, or other suitable knitting needles

You Will Also Need:

  • tapestry needle for weaving in ends, stitch markers for marking center stitch
