Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, basic lace stitches (K2tog, KFB, YO, SKP)

Pattern Description:

This design was inspired by Edna Pontellier, the main character in Kate Chopin's novella "The Awakening." The main body of the shawl is worked in one stitch pattern, giving it a simple elegance. Then the lace border comes along to shake things up a little bit, just like that fateful summer at the shore did for Mrs. Pontellier.
This pattern is suitable for a first lace project; the lace repeats are easy to memorize, making it an easy summer knit for experienced knitters as well. The shawl's shape keeps it on your shoulders easily and the project goes quickly with just a single skein of yarn.

Gauge:

22 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches in main body lace pattern

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • finished shawl measures 47 inches across at top edge by 16 inches deep

Materials:

  • fingering weight yarn, 100g
