Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques & Skills Used: garter tab provisional CO, knit/purl, lace; this pattern includes both charts and written instructions for the lace edging.

Pattern Description:

Lumina is a reversible, squared semicircular shawl inspired by a glowing, hand-dyed silk blend yarn in a beautifully draping DK weight. Beginning with a garter tab cast on, it is fully reversible with a garter stitch body and easy transitions to the lace edging patterns. Designed to maximize every yard of a special yarn, instructions are included to customize for differing amounts of yardage.

Gauge:

Gauge: 20 st and 30 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking. Gauge is not critical for this project, however a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Size: 15" deep and 42" across wingspan, after blocking.

Materials:

  • Yarn: Barking Dog Yarns Cassiopeia (50% Merino, 50% Silk; 230 yards/100g); 2 skeins, shown in Pinot Noir. For similar size and drape, choose a wool and silk blend dk weight yarn.

You Will Also Need:

  • Other Materials: US 6 (4mm) 40" circular needle; US 9 (5.5mm) needle for bind off; Stitch markers (6); Yarn needle; Scrapyarn for provisional CO.
