Basic Skills Necessary:

  • understanding of working YOs, ssk, k2tog,
  • multiple stitch patterns across
  • ability to do a big project

Pattern Description:

Whether you want to show the recipient how much you love them ... or just want to show your love of knitting, this shawl is the perfect answer. Knit from the top down in 100% cotton (sample used approx 440 yds of a DK-weight cotton), this shawl keeps your knitting interest with the fun eyelet-hearts and traditional knit-on edging, while the unique shaping keeps the shawl on your shoulders.

Directions are charted and row-by-row.

ALWAYS slip the first st of every row to make a nice chained edge
shawl starts with a garter tab
as the shawl "grows", you'll work more and more eyelet hearts
border is a traditional feather-fan that ends in non-rolling garter stitch
this shawl MUST be blocked for the lace to come alive and really show the heart-eyelets
once you have the markers set, slip them as you go to keep the three panels and the 4-stitch garter edges in line.
