Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic lace stitches (YO, SSK, k2tog)

Pattern Description:

A beautiful balance of stockinette, lace and texture come together to create Meira, a crescent shaped shawl knit in a versatile, sport weight yarn. This piece will be easily worn throughout the year, no matter the season! Its generous wingspan wraps gracefully around its wearer in a variety of ways, providing just enough warmth on a crisp Spring day, a cool Summer's eve, or bundled under a coat during the Fall and Winter.

Gauge:

21 sts and 32 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch, unblocked

Getting exact gauge is not critical, but it will affect the final size and yardage needed for your shawl. Final size is also dependent on how gently or aggressively you choose to block your shawl.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Length: 68" (173 cm) across the top edge
  • Width: 13" (33 cm) down the center stitch
  • Measurements were taken after blocking.

Materials:

  • (2) skeins Madelinetosh Pashmina Sport, 75% Merino/15% Silk/10% Cashmere, 360 yards (329 meters) per 100g skein.
  • 32" (82 cm) long or longer circular needle, size US 6 (4 mm)
  • (1) US 10 (6 mm) spare straight or circular needle (used for bind off only)

You Will Also Need:

  • (19) Stitch markers
